Gum Confident Bitter Friday Giftures

I was one of the last people to watch a movie in a theater before the pandemic thing started 5 years ago. I remember it so clearly, because it was March 13th, maybe a couple of days after the NBA shut down. It was on Friday the 13th and the theater had maybe 6 people other than me. I knew theaters were going to shut down soon, but whether it was morbid curiosity or I just because I needed a bitter day in a theater, I wanted to be there that day.

The movie I saw was Bloodshot, starring Vin Diesel. Vin Diesel is one of the most unexplainably successful and rich movies stars you will ever see. Let’s explore why. He stars in some of the biggest franchises in movies. The Fast and Furious saga, Guardians of the Galaxy, and The Pacifier franchise…of one movie. But why? How? The Fast Furious saga started as an illegal street racing movie that somehow morphed into a FAMILY (see various memes across social media) of international spies that defy logic, reason and gravity. In Guardians he plays a tree, and in Pacifier, he plays a babysitter.

How in the world can someone who is shorter than 6 feet, can’t really act, and is bald somehow take on The Rock, John Cena, and Thanos? One reason.


Fact: His real name is Mark Sinclair. He renamed himself VIN DIESEL. He manifested himself to be in a car movies, by naming himself VIN (as in VIN number of a car) and diesel (as in the most premium kind of gas). That takes confidence.

I don’t have a lot of confidence, except in one instance. Have you ever noticed that when you chew gum, you seem more confident? It’s the strangest thing, but when you are chewing it makes you seem superior to everyone else in the room. I have no idea why that is and it seems almost unexplainable. Like Vin Diesel.

If I were able to chew gum while I was in an interview, I’m pretty sure I would get every job I ever applied for. If I could chew gum while giving a speech, I would have crowds cheering at the end. And if I could chew gum when I was on dates, every girl I dated would have asked ME to marry them. I guess that is why chewing gum during important moments is considered rude. Because people wouldn’t be able to resist your confidence.

At the moment, I’m chewing gum, so you should know that this is going to be the greatest blog post you’ve ever read…but the gum is getting kind of bland, so it might suck by the end.

Enough about how great me and Vin Diesel are. Let’s get to the Bitter Friday Giftures…

If you ever want to know what it’s like to be Vin Diesel…

The reason why Michael looks so disheveled…

…is because the gum is in his hair.

By the way, the reason why Vin Diesel and other really confident people like him don’t chew gum is because if they did, their heads would explode. Literally. There is only so much confidence you can have before your head explodes. And by the way, this post isn’t sponsored by 5 Gum, Trident, Extra, Orbit or Dubble Bubble, but it should be, because I just wrote their ad for them. That is how confident (brand that is sponsoring me right here) gum is making me.

  1. This post makes me want to pop in a piece of Bubblicious or Orbit. But then I’d be OVERconfident, and who would mop up the mess after my head explodes? 🤷🏾‍♀️
