Join the debate: swallow or spit?
The age old question...swallow or spit?
Do you swallow? Or do you spit? Personally I'm a spitter. I just don't think it's healthy to swallow something like that. I suppose if I absolutely had to, I would swallow, but only if someone was about to realize what was in my mouth.

How about you?...Do you swallow or spit?
Why do I spit?
When I was growing up, I loved to chew gum. I chewed it all the time. I also swallowed it all the time. Then my Gram told me that gum stays in my system for 7 years and if I keep swallowing it, eventually my whole stomach would be filled with gum.
So I started spitting.
But don't think I'm stupid. I know what the experts say. "Even though your body can't digest gum, you can still pass it like any other indigestible thing you eat."
But I also know my Gram was never wrong. So I figure I'm better safe than sorry.
Besides, who wants to poop out gum?
Is it ever ok to swallow?
OK. So sometimes I have to swallow.
For instance, if I'm at a job interview and I forget I'm chewing gum, and then I realize it and I'm scared the interviewer is going to realize what I'm doing, then I swallow.
Or if I'm at the library and I pop a really loud bubble (by accident!) and the librarian starts glaring at me, I'll swallow the evidence and point to someone else.
But I think those are the only two instances when I would swallow.
