Maybe next year

When I was a baby, I wasn’t allowed to eat gum. I didn’t really have any interest in it until Halloween last year (aka, the worst night of Mommy’s life). Mommy finally let me have some a few months ago. It didn’t go very well, but she decided to give me another shot.

Mommy: Now don’t swallow it like last time.
Me: Why?
Mommy: Because it will turn your belly black and make it hurt (the teachers used to say this at my old daycare.
Me: Ok, I promise.

Ten minutes later, I was lifting up my dress and staring at my tummy…

Mommy: What are you doing?
Me: Just checking to see if my belly is black.
Mommy: Why?! Where is your gum?!
Me: I don’t know. Maybe that crocodile with all those sharp teeth ate it.

Yup, I swallowed my gum again. Guess it will be another few months before I can have more.
