I’ve had a weird jaggedy tooth for a week or so now. I was pretty sure a filling broke or something, so I made an appointment for the dentist to look at it. My dental appointments are all scheduled for the afternoon – after school. By then, of course I’ve eaten and drunk things. Instead of bringing toothbrush and toothpaste to work with me, I chew gum.
This was the perfect opportunity to taste my newest gum purchases: Dessert Delights. There’s key lime pie flavor, and strawberry shortcake flavor. I tried the strawberry first. It was okay. It tasted sort of like strawberry and sort of like something else. It was unusual and not unpleasant. The key lime pie was next. It genuinely tastes like key lime pie to me. I can taste the lime, the crust, and even the whipped cream. And I didn’t even swell up like that girl in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory! Well done, Extra Gum Company. Well done.
Oh, and for the record, my tooth is broken. I’ll need another crown. Dang. The first available afternoon appointment is December 17.
