A reminder to myself: I hate bubble gum.
I don’t enjoy chewing it, so don’t accept when people offer it. I don’t enjoy watching it being chewed, especially if the person is trying to talk (or heave forbid, present or perform). I don’t enjoy the after-taste it leaves in my mouth. I don’t enjoy having to find a place to responsible dispose of it.
If you are chewing it to give up smoking, more power to you. Otherwise, I really just don’t understand the appeal.
