Pass The Gumdrop

I guess you’re ready for another funny story after my last post aren’t you?

Believe it or not, I do have a very serious side to me. I’ve been studying personal development for a long time and I’ve been working with several life coaches including Ken, so I’m learning more and more about myself every day. I love studying human behavior.

With that being said it is time to tell you about my gumdrop game.

Ken and I used to indulge in gummy worms, sweet tarts and gumdrops occasionally. I love the licorice gumdrops. So flavorful! One day I decided to tape one of the gumdrops to Kens underwear and put it in his drawer. He was quite surprised to find a licorice gumdrop stuck in his gotchies. A few days later I found the gumdrop in my shoe. I then proceeded to hang the gumdrop from the rear view mirror in Kens car. We passed this stupid gum drop back and forth for probably a year.

My mother came to visit us from Ohio and I decided to send the gumdrop home with her. I carefully put it in her bra and moved it to the bottom of her suitcase. Yes, she found it when she got home and I was so glad that she didn’t eat it. If she only knew where that gumdrop had been. Unfortunately she did not know the rules of the game and she threw it away.

Don’t be surprised if all of a sudden a gumdrop appears in your car or shoe. If you find it, enjoy it and pass it on!

    What a great story! I hadn’t heard that one before but……As you said, good thing your mother didn’t eat it. Did you end up telling her the story of it?

    Love the gumdrop game Amy, we had one in the family along that line. It was a litte bird skeleton that my mother in-law found and cleaned up and painted, every xmas everyone looked for this little special gift. Sadly with the passing of our older generation the little bird has gotten lost, but the memorys of all the laughs and smiles still remain 🙂

    Hi Brenda!

    Oh yes, I told Ruthie all about the gumdrop. Nothing surprises her-she know I’m nuts. She will probably be coming to visit in May, maybe I’ll send one home with her again.
