July 21. Day 202. Often licked. Never beaten

Apparently licking your lips is totally okay when you're a dog but when you are not a human. How unfair is that? I know this because the skin specialist told me so this week. Apparently my dry, cracked lips are associated at least in part with excessive licking. This may be so but I reckon the hideous cold wind that has been blasting Brrrisbane over the past couple of weeks may have contributed more than a little to it. The 14,000 step target I have set myself which has me traipsing the streets and paths of Brisbane at all hours of the day and night in that wind also has a bit to do with it. But apparently this dry lip thing has a solution - lip balm. Gee, I'm glad I saw a skin specialist this week. I wouldn't have been able to come up with that on my own. Still while dry lips might be a side effect the benefits of the view make the walk worthwhile.
