It varies between brands.
It depends on how big or small.
The style/approach you take to doing it matters.
Yup, you guessed it. I’m talking about a piece of gum and chewing it.
We’ve all been there. You put your gum in your mouth an hour, or even a few hours ago. You have been chewing away…even though the flavour is gone now…you keep on chewing.
BUT THEN the consistency starts to go weird. It gets all pasty in your mouth. AND of course, it’s at this exact moment that one of the following things happens:
1. M.I.A-Garbage-Can: You can’t for the life of you find a garbage can! They all ran away right when your gum problem started. Garbage cans can sense it I swear.
2. Friend-Run-In: You run into someone you know and an inevitably long conversation ensues. And if it is most cases, they are asking you a lot of questions making you talk a lot with this strange substance forming in your mouth.
3. Public Dilemma: You can’t find or make it to a bathroom and there are just lots of people around. You want to spit it out but it falls apart. Only clean option – swallow it (least healthy option…been there done that)
I don’t think I’m the only one who has been in this situation…if so…this NTD is a warning. It’s super awkward and nasty and makes you actually question what the heck gum is made of.
Anyways, chew away my friends! But remember, be safe and always come prepared…
…with a gum wrapper.
