We have been wanting to go see the Gum Wall, or should I say, the daughter has been wanting to go see the Gum Wall for some time now so we finally made a gum date with the daughter to go see it.
Alison has been bugging Dave for some time now to show her this famous place where everyone sticks their gum on the wall right before entering the Pike Place Theater. If this is something you'd be interested in visiting someday just head on down to the lower Post Ally -- and I promise you, you can't miss it!
I guess the story goes like this....everyone lines up along the wall on Post Ally as they file into the theater. Before people would enter the theater they'd stick their chewing gum on the wall. I don't know if maybe this started back in the days before they'd let you into the theater with chewing gum. Who knows -- maybe the owners got tired of scrapping gum off the floors and under the chairs.
I can't even begin to think about a bunch of pushy impatient kids waiting in line and some kid getting shoved into that wall -- or worse yet,...the poor mom who has to get gum off the back of little juniors coat!
Of course we took gum and added more to the wall,...after all this is what one is expected to do when visiting a famous Gum Wall. So if you happen to be in the Gum Wall neighborhood make sure and look for three blobs of boring white gum stuck to two pennies -- that would be ours. We are calling ours a " two cent gum sandwich."
It has been super busy with the kids all home...will catch up with everyone soon! Hope everyone had a super fun Christmas and you are all enjoying a relaxing New Year thus far!
Heading out now to see "Marley and me." Catch up with you soon!
