when we lived in the second house, natalie got a tube of blistex. it was white and made my lips tingle. my continuous need for lippy stuff began when i was 15 with lip medex. i don't remember why i started, but since that first little jar 23 years ago, i have compulsively used some sort of lip balm. sometimes it seems as if i can't function without it. I'm a junkie. If my lips are dry, i can't sleep. I'm not proud. I've used Vaseline straight out of the jar. I have at least considered using olive oil.
Dammit. Now I need to apply some. Check the right front pocket and find a full tube of cherry chapstick. life is good.
