Chew Toy

Despite the usually riveting lectures, sometimes I need a little something or other to keep me alert during class. I'll often snack on grapes, cereal, marshmallows, or raisins. I don't drink coffee, but occasionally I will buy an Earl Grey tea (which I think smells like Froot Loops-- anyone else??) and the sipping as well as the caffeine helps keep my eyes bright. And sometimes I will reach for my emergency pack of Trident. I don't chew gum often-- the flavor loss and aftertaste tend bug me and I also think I am a pretty annoying gum chewer (I smack, I pop tiny bubbles, I chew really fast)-- but it does the trick in a pinch. So I treated myself to a brand new pack for this brand new quarter. Hm. This post was a lot more interesting in my head.
