I think I have a problem

I don't know if this is an addiction, an obsession or just a (hopefully) humourous little quirk. But in the past two days I have discovered that I own 12 tubes, tubs, and jars of lip balm- all in varying degrees of usage. There are two tubes of Dermatone spf 23 , two Chapstick tubes (spf 15 and spf 30), a jar of Mentholatum, a tub of Carmex, a tub of Rocky Mountain Lip Repair, a squeezable tube of Lee Lip Ex, a squeezable tube of a generic brand of "lip treatment" (unopened)," a tube of Sun Shadow spf 30, a tube of Burt's Bees Waterproofing Lip Balm, and a small jar of plain old Vaseline.

I found three of these lip balms in my purse. I keep one in the car; one in a kitchen drawer; one in the downstairs bathroom drawer; one on my nightstand; and the other five in a storage box under the sink in the master bath - presumabley in the now clearly unlikely event that I run out of lip protectant. So, what say you? Addiction? Obsession? Quirk? Or am I just turning into a batty almost middle-aged woman who apparently lives in mortal fear of the devastating calamity that leaves me without lip balm?!

By the way - the above inventory does not take into account the rather large number of lipsticks that I also own - and I barely wear lipstick . . . . . . . yeah, okay, I'm with you - BATTY!

This is me with lotions and body creams. And no, there's nothing wrong with it :)

Oh yes. Chapstick rocks. I'm not quite this bad anymore, but I used to put a stick in my PJ pocket in case I awoke in the night and needed a greasing.
