A couple neighborhood girls called Renee out to the gate today. She went out to see what they wanted. They said they wanted to give her some Mongolian gum, and each held out a stick to her. She took them graciously and came in the house. Then looked down and read: "Wrigley's Spearmint Gum", on them. I guess they were hoping giving a gift would smooth their way into playtime. If not now, then sometime in the future. Nevertheless a generous gesture, in keeping with Mongolian character. We know what 'Mongolian gum' tastes like, and you probably do too.
