conversations with strangers #53

i am talking to strangers?! what? why?

i placed my purchases on the countertop.

employee: i see you’re buying the night balm.

me: oh yes! it’s the most amazing stuff.

employee: i know! i go through it like nobody’s business.

me: this is my third tube. i’m obsessed. i use it all the time, not just at night.

employee: oh i know. it’s especially awesome in the winter here with all that wind and cold and stuff. they were out of it for a whole month because it’s so popular and we just couldn’t keep it in stock.

me: i’m not surprised. this stuff is genius.

she switched back into salesperson mode as she packed up my purchases and explained the survey on the bottom of the receipt. i was surprised at the formality of the rest of the conversation, but it sure was delightful having met someone else who shares my affinity for this chapstick.

[and consider this my plug for the night balm. it very well may change your life.]

    I am a lip balm addict — I can’t stand dry lips. Thanks for telling us about this stuff. It sounds fabulous!

    Ooh, I think I need it. Did you buy it at B&BW or do they sell it elsewhere?
