Greetings! Also, you are incredibly cool and if you don't mind I will friend you now.

The so-called "Australian chewing sticks" (I know, who named these?) are these things. Which are, apparently, so Australian that they are in fact only available in the U.S, which is of course perfectly logical.

Anyway, they make really great breath fresheners. I give them out to people who ask me for gum or mints, and a couple of my friends swear by them now, too. Of course, one may look rather silly gnawing on a toothpick like a hillbilly, but such is the price one must pay.
I found you via the Search-Random function, hope you don't mind the intrusion. This post caught my eye...especially the Tea Tree Australian chewing sticks. Actually bought a couple of packs, will post on how they turn out.

I hope you don't mind that I "friended" you. You seem like an interesting person. :-)

Not at all! Hello! Make yourself at home!

You might want to ignore me until the drugs wear off, though. ;)
