Slinky was (and is) an awesome contraption, and getting a new one was always cause for celebration. But inevitably, within days, mine would get bent irreparably out of shape, through faulty slinkying or sabotage or God's wrath, and the too-early knowledge of futility and hopelessness would cloud my childish heart.

And so it is with Burt's Bees lip balm in a tin. It seems that I can't have one of these without the two halves of the tin becoming stuck together, truncating what should be a years-long partnership between it and my chapped lips into maybe 3 months, tops.

And the same feeling of why? why?
