My blog friend Amber from Confessions of a Crochet Addict challenged me to a Gum Smack Down here and I ( stupidly ) said " BRING IT ON AMBER !!!" . What's a little gum ? I thought. Nevermind the OSHA hazard of chewing a really big wad of gum. I figured I would pack this puppy up and go on vacation with the time I had left ! ........yes ....I can hear you laughing now.......
I even brought in a few ringers. What's better then four boys, a tree house and 5 wads of gum ?
These kids are no scaredy cats either - they're pretty tough !
Well the little ones are pretty tough......
First of all telling 4 kids they can have as much gum as they want makes them ridiculously happy. Perhaps euphoric......It looks like I just told them the Easter Bunny , Santa and the Tooth Fairy were all coming for a party !
They also each have their own unique methods for handling a large chew.
Exhibit A the Three Biter :
He was all disgusted no one would save their gum for a picture !
Exhibit B The Nibbler :
He thought you had to eat the box too !
Definately don't try this at home !
Exhibit D The Two Biter :
The drool from this one was GROSS !!!
Exhibit E The Bubble Blower :
This was as disgusting as I thought it would be - maybe worse. Although the kids thought it was great and actually THANKED me for buying all that gum!
It causes intense drool, kids to wipe their faces on your pants, the urge to hurl, dangerous amounts of gum to stick to your hair and my teeth *SCREAMED* in pain ! Let me not forget to mention the sugar buzz and fried taste buds from all the "flavor crystals".I really don't recommend this for anyone above the age of 20.
I am giving this up to my friend Amber as she chewed TWELVE FEET of this sugared latex BY HERSELF. I managed only six : ( . If I add the entire wad we all chewed together we conquered THIRTY FEET of the gooey stuff ! Still pretty impressive ! I attempted to get the boys to give me back the gum for a final yet gross photo op but only one of them would cooperate ! It was almost as big as a guinea pig ! God knows where all that will end up.I am sure it will cause some sort of septic back up. Oh and make sure you've got a few rolls of paper towels for all the disgusting drool !

So who's up to the challenge ?
