Bubble Blowing is Social

Sims love it, and they can do it as a group for hours without even meeting each other. Yet, when they finally order that pizza, they gain relationship points with the delivery guy.
No more!

Bubble blowing interaction is now flagged as allowing conversation relationship changes.
These may be positive or negative (just like meal conversations), but at least they freaking happen.
Whether they are discussing the colour of numbers or laughing at the word "lamp," bubble blowing is now a true social activity.

I never understood why Sims never gained social points from bubble blowing - it seems like a very social activity to me. So thank you for this!

Fantastic! There may now be a point to have one at a party. This has always bugged me so I just never used them.

I'm so dense that I never realized that relationships didn't build from bubble-blowing, maybe because I don't use the things that often. But now I will. Thanks for creating something I didn't know I needed.

This is great! I was always so annoyed that people didn't get relationship points with this! Now I can start using my "bubble blower den" again.

Oh, thank goodness. Practically every dorm I have has one of those bubble blowers, and it irks me that they don't socialize while giggling hysterically.

Thank you! I can't tell you how many times I have invited someone to join my sim in bubble blowing festivities to gain relationship points, which of course never happened! Thanks a ton!

THANK-YOU! I'm astonished that it took this long for someone to think of it! I hadn't even realized how incongruous that seemed before I saw this mod.

Thank you so very much. I had a party once and everyone was having a great time on the bubble blower, but the party ended as a flop saying I should have paid attention to my guest, that no one had fun. I can not belive maxi lift this out. Thanks again.

I love this. I wanted to create a "hookah" bar lot of sorts for my sims, and this makes it about a million times better. :D

Super great idea! It always bothered me that this item doesn't help with the social at all when one would totally think it would! I hardly used it before despite it being a neat item. I definitely think I will now.
