Theme Thursday.....DOUBLE

Double, Double!


I discovered Wrigley's Double Mint gum
was a special gum,
an important gum,
before most of you were born,
way back
when I was a kid.

I discovered that it's flavor
lasted double
the amount of any other gum,
especially bubble gum,
way back
when I was a kid.

I discovered if I put it back
in it's wrapper very carefully at night,
that when I awoke in the morning,
I could chew it again that day,
way back
when I was a kid.

I discovered if my mom found out
that I was chewing
my gum again
that I had to spit it out,
way back
when I was a kid.

I discovered I saved money
by chewing my gum
double the amount of time,
and being poor it was worth it,
way back
when I was a kid.

  4. I remember the jingle "Double your pleasure, double your fun" and the Doublemint twins.

    "Used" gum sounds disgusting to me, whether it is in the wrapper or stuck under a desk.

  7. I did that to when I was a kid. Once I put the gum on the table next to the bed and when I woke up it was stuck in my hair... I had to cut it off!
