While I was at the pharmacy with the 3 goblins yesterday (btw, going out with the 3 of them is a real struggle: one clutched to my hips and two funny wee eels playing everywhere they are), I saw a lovely smile. It belonged to a lady who clearly understood Italian despite being French. She didn’t need any med she just queued with her young and frowning daughter to allow her to ask one question to the pharmacist:
“Is it true that they don’t use whale fat to make lip balm anymore?”
The young pharmacist kindly explained that yes it is true, that even pills’ coatings are now made with vegetable products.
The little girl finally smiled, just like her mum, and said to her that now she was willing to use lip balm again!
