the accidental confession

The Dada recently discovered a small, but not insignificant, wad of gum on his black coat.

Bummer.

While we discussed strategies for removing the offending Bubble Yum, The Kidling played nearby. We finally decided that Goo Gone was the answer.

Yes, I know it was ridiculously obvious. I would spend an equivalent amount of time deciding to tape my ducts with, well, duct tape. We all have our weaknesses, Dear Readers.

Eventually The Kidling chimed in, asking why it is so hard to get gum out of things. I began to explain that it is very sticky… blahblahblah… Separating something sticky from something pliable and porous… blahblahblah…

I intended to go on with my explanation when Alice interrupted, saying “I won’t do that again.”

Busted.
