Gum Ball machines everywhere you went. I choked on one of these at JC Penny, as the story goes my dad picked me up and turned me over and pounded on my back until it came out. I had stopped breathing, my dad said that it was one of the scariest things that happened to my mom and him. I was 4. From then on my mama would have to bite it in half if I was ever allowed to have one...lol. Now I have a pink gum ball machine in my front room...she would beat my butt !
