At brunch w Mari we were (surprise! for once not talking about how the bouncers have so much in common w the guards on OitNB or that line) talking about how I crack my gum because GUM CRACKING IS ATTRACTIVE and it is part of an aesthetic I have admired since I was 9 and all the tough hot older girls w darker lipliner than lips and eyeliner and big fringed bangs did it and I practised until i could do it really loud too, leading to a chapter in the exciting graphic novel memoir of my life called “Gum Cracking: an homage”
I got distracted
Oh yeah Adrienne told me she despises gum cracking and I told Mari this with shock, shockand she was like
“Gum cracking is a way of life! It’s a form of self-expression! When guys are being terrible I even chew my gum at them in exasperation.”
there you have it ppl. Gum cracking: homage and valid form of self-expression.
