I Don't Give a Bleep About- Chewing Gum



Okay, you might say what is she talking or in my case writing about now. I am just so tired of all these variety of gum choices I have to deal with. I remember back in the day when I had a choice of either Wrigleys Spearmint or Wrigleys Peppermint. I had a choice of either Bazooka Gum or Tops Bubble Gum (remember the one with the sports cards in the pack).

Now I go through the check out counter and I am spend 5 minutes just trying to decide if I want the one with the aspartame or the one with the sorbitol (I mean which one will kill me sooner). Then I have the chocolate gum, the cinnamon gum, the peppermint with the chocolate flakes, the banana gum, the orange gum, the gum that you can substitute for breakfast, the gum that will clean my teeth (so I don't have to brush them), the list goes on and on.

Meanwhile the poor cashier is standing there probably saying, "what the heck is this lady doing?" "good grief Charlie Brown."

My favorite gum of ALL time I can't even find anymore. This is the little "chicklets." God, remember Chicklets? They were so small and fun. You could put a whole lot in your mouth an make this big wad of gum.

Yeah, sometimes more is not always best.

Wow, I do remember Chicklets. Hard to forget them. Hard to forget my trips to Tijuana and all the little poor kids trying to sell you Chicklets on the street. And hey, you forgot about Juicy Fruit. :-)
