Re: chewing gum + clothes
It's chewing gum and hair you gotta watch out for. Damn, when I had long hair I somehow got it full of gum. Probably fell asleep on someone's floor during a party, but jeez, I had to cut a lot of my hair out.
BUT... I had a worse time when I was about 5. One time when my dad went away on holiday (without us kids, same old s***, cheers dad), and brought me a huge multi-coloured lollipop back (like a swirl paint job). I was very happy about that. It lasted hours and I took it to bed to finish eating it. Woke up with the damn thing stuck upside down on my head! I swear, I have NEVER been so upset in my whole life. I came downstairs to find my mother, but she was at work. The postman went past the window and burst out laughing, full on hysterical laughter too, and this made me cry even more. See, I didn't think it would ever come off.
Eventually my mom came home and washed my hair, but I tell you, that's the end of the world right there when you're only 5.
