so, sometimes you find yourself kissing someone you didn't
really want to kiss. like great aunt maude, with the hairy
cheek. or your friend's super-friendly dog. or someone you
met at a bar and had
the bad/intoxicated judgement to
or, if you are really thirsty but are squeamish about sharing
glass with a stranger. anyway, these lip covers would
your lips from grossness. they could come in different forms
i was thinking that for the ladies they could be in the form
a lipstick or gloss which forms a protective film on your lips
be peeled off when no longer needed. for the men or for
female "natural" look, it would have to be a semi-matte film
that doesn't show, unless you want to look like boy george.
if you're really cheap and somewhat warped, you could also
use these to walk around in a bar and drink out of
unsuspecting people's drinks. get drunk for free, without
worry of germs!
i really don't drink a lot, but for some reason drinking and
drunkenness seem to come up a lot in my posts. hmmm...

||<Shudder>Unless - as I have - you've seen your Pop pull an old, drunk, one-fanged woman with burnt vomit on her blouse out of a fire, remove his handkerchief from pocket to encircle lips best he could to keep the taste of the depths of hell off his lips - you'll never know how much those mini-mouth-mask-thingies mean</Shudder>
||I'm adding a link to Evenning lips (sic) from the Multimedia fair of inventions - not exactly the same, but the technology could be used here. The point is, I think, to make the lip covers look natural, so you don't offend others by not kissing them.
||It wouldn't work for dogs. Dogs use their tongues. Awwwwww, it is the most disgusting way in the world to be woken from a light doze. Doggie jumps up on your chest and tries to french-kiss you............... eeeuuuurgh. Horrible.
One of those disposable facemask things is the best protection.
I carry one of those little mouthpiece things in my first aid pack on my utility belt.
||So, in other words, lip condoms, right?
||Robin used a pair of lip protectors in one of those bad
