News & Opinion: InBubbleWrap - Financial Intelligence

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 10:37 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

I'm forever popping bubbles,
Pretty bubblewrap in the mail.
100freestamp.gifBooks fly so high,
Nearly reach the sky,
Then like from my dreams,
I wake up and try.
Fortune's always hiding,
to be discovered on life's trail,
I'm forever popping bubbles,
Pretty bubblewrap in the mail.
-Adapted from "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles" (and inspired by the version Ring Lardner sings in Eight Men Out, "I'm Forever Blowing Ballgames")
