    Ok here’s my laugh for the day . . .
    Nothing, and I mean nothing, is sacred in a house with 5 teens in it. Parents don’t have possessions, only the use of them until a quick handed teen walks by. You can give up on ever seeing the likes of scissors, fingernail clippers, tape and chapstick; no matter how many you buy, they are instantly sucked into the teen black hole.
    Last night I was at the feed store picking up some oyster shell for my darling chicken children who actually appreciate me, when on the counter I spied, and couldn’t resist buying, “chicken poop chapstick”. No there’s no chicken poop in it, that’s just the “catchy” name for this all natural, actually pretty nice, chapstick.
    So this morning I was driving my two beauty queen teens to school when one of them spotted my new chapstick in the console and snatched it up. I saw her quietly read the largely labeled “chicken poop chapstick” and silently with a look of horror pass it off to her sister who then with equal horror and silence placed it back in the console. I was smiling to myself as I realized that they thought my “chicken craziness” had taken me right over the edge, and that my chapstick was now safe forevermore!
    You gotta love the people who came up with that concept; now I wonder what they could do for scissors . . . lol!!!

    There's an old story behind the chapstick name. In the old days an old wives tale stated that chicken poop was good for chapped lips, because once you put some on you would not want to like your dried lips.[​IMG] I know nothing about the true facts. Like I said it's just a wives tale.[​IMG]

    I'm not sure they have stores that far north, but I got mine at Orscheln's Farm and Home. You might also try ebay.[​IMG]

    My neighbor brought me a stick a couple of months ago. I'm not sure where she bought it, but I've seen it at Academy.

    Someone had posted about that last year, and I have been looking for some ever since. I was told it was at Walgreens, but every one I checked at didn't have it. There's a website for it, but I'm not willing to pay $3 a tube for it + shipping. Does anyone know of any major chains that have it?

    lol . . . well my bliss could not last forever. I picked the teen queens up from their sleepovers this morning and one of them read the lable closer and said "Hey, there's no chicken poop in this!" and promptly put it on . . . My husband however is still freaked out because he quit listening half way through the story . . . lol!
