Zen and the Art of Gum Chewing (APAD)

The 119th picture in "A Picture A Day" series.

Gum. I love it.

For everyday chewing, I prefer peppermint-flavored Dentyne Ice. For fun, unabated chewing, however, I like Dubble Bubble, Bubblicious, and Big League Chew. I like to chew a piece until it loses all flavor, spit it out, and pop another piece in my mouth without missing a beat. Yummmm.

Chewing gum is calming for me. The Greeks would call it catharsis, the Buddha probably Mindfulness. I prefer to think of it more like Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy in an otherwise cruel world.

Gum. I love it.

I prefer Bubble Mint by Orbit. Or this other one that I never know the name of but when I see it I know it.
