I enjoyed listening to people compare stories about their characters (in W.O.W. you create a character within realms. The realms consist of two different factions, the Horde, and the Alliance. There is always a great debate on which faction is “good” and which is “bad”.) My children and I entertained ourselves by trying to figure out who played what faction. Then we would eavesdrop (sorry!) on the conversations and whoever was right would grin with glee. My son truly should have been putting money on his guesses; he would have come out with enough to buy another game!Then in Troy, Ohio, on June 26 1974, history was made. A gentleman by the name of Clyde Dawson approached the checkout counter at Marsh supermarket with a package of Wrigley’s Juicy Fruit gum. Sharon Buchanan made the first official scan of an item actually being purchased at 8:01 that morning. Visitors to the Smithsonian Institution can now see that pack of ten sticks of gum, along with the receipt.
