Lip Service

*From Stan Kegel and Richard Lederer’s recent book.

A young woman, extraordinarily attractive in personality, character, and presentation, was suffering from an illness that made her lips cracked and sore. The slightest movement of her mouth caused pain and embarrassment. Her condition, though not cured, was somewhat relieved by the application of a medication prescribed by her physician.

The instructions on the prescription were to apply the medication once a day, but the young woman found that more frequent applications were palatable and effective.

After exhausting her supply, she returned to the doctor’s office for another one. The receptionist announced the arrival of the returning patient to the doctor: “It’s the super gal with fragile lips expecting extra doses.”
