When I was driving the zip-zip car today I accidently spilled about a gallon of ice cold water on my lap. And in my shock and yelping and "eff, eff, eff" I accidently swallowed my gum.
Luckily it was about 127 degrees outside and the cute and sassy little black skirt I was wearing is made of synthetic fibers. Quick dry. Wrinkle free. Make a note to yourself about this: rayon/poly/lycra blend is very amiable to spillage, and probably not just the totally effin' cold water kind.
Not sure how long gum lasts in a stomach. Probably should wash it down withsomething strong. Right now.
