My Gum of Choice
The vending company where I work has gum. This particular gum is sold in three flavors, strawberry, watermelon and some sort of mint. I choose the watermelon flavor most of the time.
I like it.
Typically, I use it when I'm bored, or if my teeth feel - you know, crummy. I usually can chew it for a few minutes until the flavor is gone, then I need to wrap it up and throw it away. My teeth get sore if I chew for too long. I also notice that my gum heats up. My crowns must hold a little heat, and my gum feels hot after a while. I guess I should mention that to my dentist next month. Smile.
Wrapping It to Dispose of It
Why do I save the wrapper and then wrap the gum in it to dispose?
The reason is simple. I care about my coworkers. You see, we empty out the trash every few hours, and it is gross when someone's gum sticks to the bag. In fact, it's just rude to them.
So, I wrap it.
