Three things about lipbalm

1. It gives the boy person friend the quivering feebles.

2. It is best procured from Crazy Rumors, who make delicious tea- and coffee-flavoured ones, and a bunch of other ones that smell like peppermints, bubblegums, icecreams, and citrus fruits. They are silky and nommy.  My very favourite was Plum Apricot Tea Balm from their Brew collection, which they seem to have discontinued, but all the ones I’ve had have been luscious: I am quite the loyal fan. They’re also vegan and cruelty-free, and contain no petroleum products, which I like in a lipbalm, really, sheesh.

3. I have run out.

O dear. I have backup lipbalm, of course; it is New Zealand made and it says Soothing Mint on the front, but it is not the same.
