Some Awkward Lip - Karen
Today on the bus on my way home from school, a girl with very swollen, infected lips sat next to me. I noticed her lips, but didn't make it obvious that I noticed. A few minutes into the silent bus ride, she looked at me and said, "I'm allergic to my chapstick." "Oh," I replied. "What kind of chapstick do you use?" "Carmex." "Bummer." It was quiet again until I got off the bus at the SLO Senior Center and walked home.
