Random Thursday Rant

Is anoyone else obsessed with Burt’s Bees Chapstick?

The day I was leaving for Austin I could not find my Burts Bees Chapstick. Anywhere. Not in its normal spot in my purse, not on the floor of my car or cupholders, not on my nightstand, not in any pant pockets. I was so sad.

It’s awful when you can’t find this chapstick. It happens every time. I am sitting in my car, get the urge to put on my chapstick, can’t find it immediately and my lips feel 1000 times more chapped than they were before when I wasn’t even sure if I needed it or I just wanted to enjoy the act of putting it on or I just needed them to feel burning and tingly….yeah. Total freak? No, I know there are more of you urge to feel your lips tingle people out there.  🙂

The airport doesn’t sell Burt’s Bees Chapstick. Not BWI, not Houston, not Austin. I survived on Blistex that I probably only used twice the whole time I was gone (proof that I don’t really need it, I just like feeling my lips burn). I came home and go to Walmizzie for something, who knows, probably plants, or cheap Easter candy, or a picnic basket and do you think they had what I wanted??? Nope. Every single other Burt’s Bees product but none of the make your lips burn chapstick – only mango, medicated clove oil and raspberry. I bought the clove oil and cried when it didn’t make my lips burn.

Yesterday, I finally broke down and went to CVS to get more Burt’s Bees. Thankfully, they came to my rescue. And now my lips feel spectacular.
