Power of Anti-Suggestion

October 3, 2013

I was at the dollar store, waiting in line to buy some fake centipedes to scare my mother, when I noticed Thrills chewing gum on the candy rack.
I said aloud “Oh my God. I can’t believe they still make this disgusting lavender-flavoured gum.”
This guy, a complete stranger, in front of me in line turns around, picks up a pack of Thrills, and buys it.
I think I’ll go back and see if I can get a stranger to buy dollar store condoms.

    The gum would probably be safer than the condom…


    Don’t know if you’ve seen them, but there are adverts over here that imply chewing gum to be used as a rubber.

    Ummm, I think more expansion is needed concerning the first sentence of this post.

    p.s. I’m not going to any of the GTA Sloan shows because I don’t have time these days to leave the T. Sad they’re not playing the T itself.


    Centipedes, millipedes; you know pretty much any myriapod scares the shit out of my mother. So I buy fake myriapods to scare her. It’s really funny.

    You have amazing powers of persuasion. Behold, the new Kreskin! WIGSFkin!


    I prefer to be called WhatIGotSoFarskin

    The gum isn’t that bad.


    Their current on box slogan is “it still tastes like soap.”

    Oh yeah, I saw Thrills last time I was at the checkout at Dollarama. I don’t get the appeal at all.

    You have so many shoes now that you could probably supply a centipede with footwear.
