Jack Talks Some More
Jack: Do you think it's possible that using Chapstick can make your lips MORE chapped?
TR: What do you mean?
Jack: My lips have gotten so bad that I have to use Chapstick every two hours. After I use it, my lips get drier and drier--more than before I used it, and then I have to reapply.
TR: Maybe you're allergic to it--like Lola.
Jack: I'm NOT allergic. I think it's like using steroids, you know? When you're putting steroids in your body from the outside, you stop producing testosterone naturally. So when you quit using the steroids, suddenly you have no testosterone and you lose all your male stuff.
TR: What in the world does THAT have to do with Chapstick?
Jack: Well, in this case, Chapstick is the steroids and my lips are the testicles.
TR: That's quite a metaphor.
Jack: It makes perfect sense.
