I was thinking about when I was a kid. When we went shopping getting some change to get a gumball out of the gumball machine was a big deal. Didnt always get the change or wanted more than one gumball.
So, what I did was look high and low all around the area to find a gumball that had been accidently dropped on the floor to be rejected or lost because it rolled away/under something.
Covered in dirt or hair? Not a problem. A decent wipe down with my shirt would fix it right up. 5 second rule my ass. 5 years is more like it!!
Were you one of this desperate dirty little kids?
