One afternoon as I raced by, something caught my eye and it caught it in such a way that I a took a deep breath, a long look around, and went back.
I reached into the hole and withdrew two pieces of chewing gum minus their outer wrappers
I ran home, and on our front porch I examined my loot. The gum looked fresh. I sniffed it and it smelled all right. I licked it and waited for a while. When I did not die I crammed it into my mouth: Wrigley’s DoubleMint.
When Jem came home he asked me where I got such a wad.
You touched the house once!
Spit it out right now! Don't you know you're no even supposed to touch those trees over there
That was different! You go gargle right now, you here me. You don't n' i'll tell Calpurnia on you.
Rather than risk a tangle with Calpurnia, I did as Jem told me
