So I'm taking a Jazzercise class (though you can call it uncoordinated-spazzercise when I'm there) and I have a water bottle I take to class, then put in the middle console of the mini van in between classes. The other day I'm sitting at a stop light and I take a swig of my water. It's minty and I spend a few intersections trying to come up with why the water would taste minty before my phone rings and I'm preoccupied with other things. The next day my kindergartener is thirsty and asks for a drink. I pass her back the water bottle but tell her it tastes kinda funny. She's quiet for a few seconds and then says "Mom, there's gum in here"
Yeah, I didn't notice there was a big ol' wad of chewed up gum in there. TOTALLY GROSS. Who puts their gum in a half full water bottle? I'll tell you who, the guy that laughed his head off when the kindergartener told him the story. Totally made his day. I don't even feel bad about my part in the tanning bed conspiracy any more.
