My Wife’s Favorite Is Burt

This is Burt’s Bees Lip Balm. I stole it from my wife.

I have been stealing this lip balm from her since last 3 years.

Burt, never showed me an ad.

But Burt showed up with his 1980s formula, beeswax based lip balm.

The first time I saw the lip balm, was at the checkout counter at a CVS in Boston.

Bought 2 of them because I liked the packaging. Who knew, that the actual lip balm was as cool as the packaging itself.

Then I moved back to India and became a lip balm thief.

Why?

Because Burt solves my problem.

Every day, for the last 4 years now.

Never once I saw an ad by Burt.

Oh also, even when I used to live in the U.S. – no ads.

But of course Burt also made sure that when I put the lip balm on, the peppermint cools up my face like crazy!

In India, these lip balms are sold on Amazon for 4 times the price of any other lip balm in the country.

So, when we run out of these, do I wait for “My Uncle” to go to the U.S.(like a good Indian guy that I am) and buy a bucket load for me, or do I pay 4 times the price for this and get them in 2 days?

You tell me.
