First time for everything

Funny thing happened yesterday. For the first time in my life... I threw away an empty tube of chapstick!

Probably not what you were thinking, but it's still never happened to me before. I always manage to lose them within a week of buying a new one. So I started buying them in bulk, thinking if I can't keep track of one, at least I'll have a backup! ... which means I'd lose three tubes of chapstick instead of just one.

So I got smart, and got a special "chapstick only" place. I kept it there religiously, refusing to lend it out, not even to my wife. And it worked! ... except for when I needed chapstick at school, or at work, or in any other room of the house besides the bedroom... but it worked!

Now I just have to figure out how to have a "chapstick only" place AND manage to have it when I need it, but so far those are mutually exclusive situations.
