Arlanda

Well, here I am at Arlanda airport, ridiculously early, but what else is there to do? 

I woke this morning with horribly chapped lips.  After checking in I went to the duty free to see if they had any lip balm.  A very helpful woman led me to the girly makeup department.  "No, no, this is for me.  I don’t need lipstick" I cried, in as manly a voice as I could muster.

"This is for chapped lips" she replied, showing me a very girly Elizabeth Arden lipstick.  Hideously expensive, but I didn’t fancy talking for two days with cracked lips, so I bought it.  5 minutes ago I put it on, trying to avoid the eye of anyone that might be looking.  I have to say it actually works wonders.  The ingredients show more vitamins than I normally have for dinner, but I expect my lips will be their kissable norm by tomorrow.
