It was a pretty close race for a while there, but it looks like Bubblegum Brat is the final winner in this latest reader’s choice post. As for those of you that voted for Red Riding Hood, don’t worry, I plan to put up that scene in the members’ section a little ways down the road.
Many of you mentioned wanting to see me get spanked for blowing bubbles because either you had gotten in trouble for something similar or you simply find gum chewing a highly punishable offense (note: this scene was actually based on a member’s request who asked if I could work my bubblegum blowing skills into a storyline). I fully admit it’s a very bad habit of mine that borders on downright addiction. I ran out of gum towards the end of my cruise and there was none available (not even sugar-free!!) in any of the on board stores. I had to settle for Lifesavers and tried to refrain from visibly twitching.
not even in the same league
My love for gum is hardly new. As a kid, a fair amount of my allowance was given to Cadbury (Bubblicious) and Wrigley’s (Juicyfruit). Gum however was strictly forbidden in my house as my father can’t stand the sight, smell, or sound of the stuff and so I chewed it almost exclusively in class. I know, it wasn’t allowed in school either, but I was less likely to get caught there and I became an expert in chewing on the sly and looking completely shocked and innocent if accused. Looks like it’s time to accept my punishment and make up for all those times I got away with it!
Well, we’re due to be hit tonigh with what will hopefully be the last storm of the season. Up to a foot of snow is expected to be dumped on our little cowtown so I should probably run out to the deli like all of the other snow chickens and stock up on milk, bread, and bubblegum of course!
