Wax lips

Wax Lips “What do you think it tastes like?” my dentist asked me yesterday as she formed a temporary crown out of some sort of waxy material.

“I’m going to sound old, but it tastes like those wax lips we used to have as a kid. Do you remember those?”

“I’ve never heard of them.”

“Yeah, I’m old.”

It’s funny how a distinct taste can bring back a specific memory that was buried so deep it probably should have been gone by now.

I came home and googled “wax lips” and found that quite a few places still sell them. Although, the lips in the picture above (from Amazon.com) doesn’t quite resemble what I remember them looking like. Didn’t they used to have a white border?
