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!
another lip balm addict! welcome to the club. :)
Ooh, I think I need it. Did you buy it at B&BW or do they sell it elsewhere?
i buy it at B&BW, but i think you can get it online, though with shipping, it’s prob cheaper at B&BW. plus, when i was there a week or so ago, it was on sale!
I will find it! And when I find it, I will buy it.
You won’t regret it.
