On Monday evening my family shared a nice dinner with my parents. As the meal came to a close one of my children asked the adults to tell an experience from when thy were young. My mother volunteered the following.
One day at church my mother noticed that my brother and I had big wads of gum. She asked us where we got the gum. To her horror, we responded, “The drinking fountain”. Being the good mother she was the gum was quickly disposed of.
We had a good laugh and I can honestly say that I don’t remember looking for and then chewing pre-owned gum as a child.
