As I threw a brand new stick of my fav Orbitz cinnamon gum into my mouth, I wore quite the evil grin
The pack had been laying on my son’s nightstand in his bedroom when I picked up some empty dishes a week ago
It had only a few sticks missing and he was at work
I scooped it up laughing….
It was a small payment for cleaning up his mess
Today at work, as I consumed another stick, that gum tasted just as sweet as the initial victory piece
I smiled as the initial burst of cinnamon flavor hit my tongue
There is just something about my victory laced with the upgrade from Super Bubble that makes one feel rich
But something hits me
It is not the expected guilt for stealing
Indeed it is something far worse
Only this morning I remember picking up my stolen hairbrush from his bedroom floor while he was safely in the shower
Strategically deciding to place it in the opposite drawer in my bathroom, he was such a creature of habit, it would take him months to find this new hiding spot
I had even chuckled at the deviousness of it all
How is any of this victorious?
Had I not also recently visited my daughters’ bathroom to collect my toothpaste, shampoo and used razor…
Whose gum was this?
But I already knew that answer
This was ABC gum……Already Been Confiscated
My son had originally taken it from me
Talk about a flavor burst…..
