one of my greatest pet peeves is inappropriate gum-chewing, by which i mean people who chew gum with their mouths open where i can see and hear them.
so last night i'm on muni, in a single seat, contentedly knitting away and keeping my eyes on my work as more and more people get on. and some woman ends up standing next to me, reading.
i don't even have to look at her to know she is chewing gum because every few seconds she makes some gross wet smacking sound to remind me.
and i try to ignore it. try to ignore it. try to ignore it.
but finally, as the chewing reaches new auditory heights, i decide i have to at least give her a disgusted look*.
so i look up, and find myself staring directly at the title of her book.
it's called "choke."
*hey, this is as confrontational as i get, folks.
