I like gum...

I am kind of crazy about gum.  Weird.  I know.  Jack estimates that we spend around $300 a year on gum for me.  We think that may be on the low end.  I chew gum basically all day.  All gum must be sugar-free, preferably w/ Xylitol. I have certain flavors of gum for certain things.  Gum for running, gum for after dinner, gum for while I am at a doctor's office, gum for while I clean the house.... you get the idea.  Today I went to get my gum for after lunch and it was gone!!  Now that is not usually a big deal b/c I can substitute another kind in a pinch.  EXCEPT- I was on my last pack!  I am planning on going to the grocery tomorrow and we are running low on gum and groceries.  So I was making this last pack of "Trident- Wild Blueberry Twist" last the remainder of the day.  It was a challenge but I was up for it.  Anyway- I go to get my gum after lunch and it is not there!  I empty my purse.... gone!  I immediately pick up the phone and call Jack (who was meeting w/ someone by the way.)

Me- Honey, did you take my gum?
Jack- Maybe.
Me- Did you or not?  Where is it?
Jack- I needed some gum.
Me- WHAT???  Why didn't you take like 2 pieces?
Jack- I don't know.  I needed some gum.
Me- DON'T TAKE THINGS OUT OF MY PURSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jack- Sorry.
Me- That was my last pack. What am I supposed to do now?
Jack- I don't know honey.  I'm sorry.
Me- When you get home please bring the remainder of my pack of gum into the house.

Poor Jack.  He really is going to be a Saint one day.  Here is what he came home w/.  What a patient and caring husband I have.  Thanks so much love.  Sorry, I am so nuts.
