March SOL Challenge #18
Yes, it’s true. I am addicted to the stuff. Since I was 8 or 9 years old. I started younger than most.
It seemed like the more I used the more I needed. That’s when I knew I had a problem.
As a kid I always kept it in my pocket. If I didn’t I was in big trouble. I actually got nervous if I didn’t have it with me. People could see it all over my face.
As an adult I keep some in all the important places…..very close at hand.
In my desk drawer.
I’ve taken to just leaving it next to my papers and my calendar when I’m in meetings now. I’m not ashamed.
In my car. There are usually 2 or 3 rolling around somewhere in there.
By my bed. I might need some in the middle of the night.
In my purse. I need it in the store. At a concert. Especially at a concert!
On the table by my couch. I don’t even have to get up for some – it’s right there for me.
In my kitchen drawer. Conveniently I don’t have to go to the bedroom or living room.
No one in the house can touch it or use it. It’s an unspoken rule. I wouldn’t use theirs either. We have a mutual respect.
It’s in a small but potent package.
I usually go through 20-25 per year. But, it’s OK because they only cost about $1.00 per. Luckily my distributor is easily accessible. Usually right around the corner.
As a kid the winter was my worst time. But, now I need it all the time. Summer can almost be worse.
Good or bad I’m addicted to the waxy substance in that little green tube that they call…..Blistex. I can’t get this monkey off my back!
