A Fun Little Fact

If you knew me when I was younger, like, really knew me, I probably told you about my dream to patent a flavour of gum I came up with. What flavour, you may ask?  Wash cloth flavour. I'm not even kidding.

When I was young, I found it so comforting to get a freshly washed wash cloth, run it under hot water, and chew on it. So gross now that I look back on it. But soo good. You know how when you walk past a house and out of a pipe there is steam, and the steam smells delicious? Like laundry? That's exactly what the wash cloth tasted like. So I thought that a wash cloth flavour of gum would sell like hot cakes.

That dream is gone, obviously. BUT the most amazing thing happened to me the other day. I bought a flavour of tea called Chamomile Nights - Bedtime Blend by Stash Premium. And I've been addicted to it. So addicted that once I chewed on the tea bag after I finished the tea (I literally sound like I'm mentally ill. I swear I'm not.)

And then it hit me. This tea tastes exactly like my hot wash cloth as a kid! No wonder I'm obsessed. And chew on the bag. I urge everyone to go and buy it. It's honestly the most soothing flavour that exists. And now I can have the comfort of my childhood wash cloth without looking like I belong in an institute.
