the things we give up for love

"Did you see that girl we just passed? I really liked her dress."

"Eh, it was okay. But did you see how much makeup she had on?"

"I thought she looked nice!"

"Maybe from far away, but as she got closer you could see it was really caked on. Gross."

"You're totally the reason I don't wear makeup. Not because I'm lazy or anything."

"I never said Don't wear it. I just don't like when you leave that menthol or minty or whatever-it-is stuff on my Gatorade bottle."

"I stopped wearing that Burt's Bees stuff because you said that."

"We all make sacrifices. Like when I started dating you, I had to come to terms with saying goodbye to my liver-flavored chapstick."

"I appreciate that. You're a pal."

Natural beauty is a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, we don't have to deal with makeup, on the other hand....hmmm, I guess it's just a blessing then.

Liver-flavored chapstick might be a big hit here in Germany, to go along with all of the liverwurst, bloodwurst, and other disgusting things they consume. If I market it, you're totally getting a cut.

When I was in my ad job, I thought I had to fit the role and wear lipstick, eye-things. I was seeing a fella then too who loves when girls get all 'dolled up'. Gosh, I'm glad I'm out of that one, it used to feel so false.

Chapstick and lip balms. If you have to pick one ting to disagree on, I'd say that's a pretty good one.

Wow. It's a risky thing to say 'make sacrifices' and follow up with 'Like when I started dating you.' On a related note I ate a tasty liverwurst sandwich this past weekend.

Liver chapstick? Seriously?

*vomits*

Not a big fan of makeup either. Anti-fan, actually.

My gf is trying to make me give up my tinted Burt's Bees becasue lip balm is addicting :-P You're a stronger woman than I.

The man in my life actually had my "gumdrops" lip balm put away for the longest time. I found it looking for a cell phone charger.
