Last night I stopped my my pharmacy to pick up my pills. (Yes, those pills.) Well, I got to my pharmacy too late... they were closed. Bummer. The rest of the store was open so I did what any resourceful woman would do, I shopped for makeup. I selected a God awful shade of liquid makeup because I heard "older" women should avoid powder foundation like the plague. It can actually make me look older *gasp*! I'm here to tell ya selecting the wrong shade does you no favors either.

Anyway, after wandering up and down the aisles for a while, the clouds parted and I found these. I am officially in heaven. Who says "size doesn't matter"? When it comes to our old friend Bonnie Bell, size matters A LOT. (Remember that big brown bottle of Ten - 0 Six astringent? What did the name mean?) I remember Lip Smackers from my childhood and I'm thrilled they have decided to bring the girth-y ones back. I know it's difficult to see, but these are the big, fat Lip Smackers of old. They are not quite as fat as I recall but it could be because my head was smaller back then. No matter, they're still super cool and make me very happy. I chose the Watermelon/Cherry flavor. I passed it around at lunch today so everyone could get a good sniff. We all agreed that it smells like junior high. They didn't have Kool Aid flavors back then but it tastes like the cherry flavored Smacker I remember. If you're a purist, you may be happier with the traditional soda flavors. I used to have Dr. Pepper and Orange Crush. I think I need to get these next. Why did it take so long for me to rediscover Lip Smackers? I think it goes back to the size. We've missed those fat Smackers because they're the best!

So, next time you miss picking up your slutty pills, be sure to pick up a taste of your childhood instead. (What?!) One whiff of your favorite flavor and you'll forget all about your demanding uterus. I plan to have a "Biggy" in my purse from here on out. Long live Lip Smackers!!!!!!!

P.S. If you have no idea what I'm talking about here then you are are too young to be reading this. Shoo! On the other hand, if you do know what I'm talking about, but Lip Smackers just weren't your thing, then look here. You must have a soft spot for some of those. Love's Baby Soft? QT? Come on! I, for one, still know exactly what Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific smelled like and I miss it! I know my hair smelled terrific during the late 70's and, if you're any friend of mine, yours did too.
