I ran out of perfume. No big deal. I wanted something new, so I went out and got a few samples of things I like to try. As I wore them, I ruled some out.
I wore my fav new perfume a few more days and was getting ready to buy some for myself. So, I did what any wife would do.
I asked my husband if he liked it.
He said something along the lines of, "its okay."
After a pause he said, "but I like that vanilla stuff you wear sometimes better. But, maybe that is lip gloss."
Its not lip gloss. Calling it lip gloss is doing the stuff a favor.
Its chap stick.
Not Clinique. Not Burts Bees. Not Chapsick brand. Not even Target brand. Its the free promo chap stick from the dentist. With the phone number on the side. That I leave in the junk drawer in the kitchen so I have one close by when I'm in a rush or one of the kids has chapped lips.
I'm gonna be asking for more of that stuff when I get my teeth cleaned.
...but I'm also going to buy some perfume.
