    9. 9. What I found Bubble gum is... a color a flavor a metaphor a story a machine Who’s talking... Teens and Tweens What are they saying “I was playing in the street with my toy water pistol one day when I was about 7. Then, I got the brilliant idea that if I stuck “i eat gum probably 8 times a day but my teeth r still healthy and clean” a piece of green bubble gum - mixed with fresh tar that had just been poured on the “I LOVE BUBBLE GUM BUT I GOT BRACES!!!! :(“ street - down inside my squirt gun, it would blow a bubble if I pulled the trigger. But it “I only eat sugarfree gum...” didn't work. That was the end of that squirt gun!”

Motivated by stress reducing activities Feel the need to impress society Insight Conversations are instigated by gum. We need to find a bridge between mint gum and bubble gum, where one feels formal and other feels laid-back and friendly. Strategy Come mingle in the social bubble.
