Savior in a Stick
I think I've found my new Savior. The one who make me feel happy and alive. The one who give meaning to my life.... That's right - It's the one and only Juicy Fruit Gum.
Have we all forgotten about this wondrous elixir? The sweet smelling, love me like a lover, gum? Well, I rediscovered it recently when I need cash back at a store and was bored of my Dentine Ice gum. I spotted the yellow wrapper and got a strange flash back to 4th grade where we would stand in single file line in the hallway completely silent while the "mean" teacher yelled at the top of her lungs, "SOMEONES CHEWING GUM!!!" How did she know? "I HAVE A TRAINED NOSE AND I CAN SMELL JUICY FRUIT GUM A MILE AWAY!!!" Oh. OK. I had a half of stick of it in my pocket but I was sure she couldn't smell it... Right? You can only smell it if you are chewing it... Right??
Well, it turns out - No. You can really smell it a mile away. So after my little retreat into childhood elementary hell, I bought the non-sugar-free gum(oh my god... Don't tell anyone - I won't be cool if I don't chew sugar-free gum) . And you know what? It's fucking awesome!!!! I have been leaving it in my car and not only does it serve as a yummy chewy treat, it has become a wondrous car air freshener! Who would of thought? Every time I get into my car I'm like, "It smells so good in here!! Ooooooo!!! I can eat this smell!!!"
Yes, I get excited over small things. Yes, I'm writing an entire entry on gum, and yes - I'm in love with Juicy Fruit gum all over again like a little hyper 4th grader who is trying not to breath out to much so that her teacher won't send her to the principles for chewing fruity goodness.
So, I guess I just wanted to remind some special people (aka: you) that Juicy Fruit is still on the market and it is indeed still da bomb.
