Lack ‘o lip balm…

…makes me neither happy nor sad. I mentioned how I was going to experiment with not using it after literally decades of daily use. So far, so good – I’ve only resorted to using it twice since I stopped, each time because of a salty snack-induced case of lip chappage. One of those led to a mild recurrence of the skin irritation issue which caused me to stop using the stuff in the first place, which has only helped reinforce my newfound aversion. We’ll see how things go as we enter into the cold months, but so far, so good. If you’re on the fence, I can attest that once you get past the first week, it’s easy and seems to have no downside.

    little known fact: if you chew lip balm it supresses your appetite, especially for beer (whether the giants win or not). so you could maybe kill two birds with one stone. just like breaking the habit of rubbing it around, you get used to the flavor . . . though you’d probably want to monitor your stool results there for a bit. btw: no thanks necessary.
