When I woke up this morning I looked in the mirror. No! Yesterday's coconut rash had now encased my lips with miniature bubble wrap. If I let it persist, it may break out all over my face. In this case, the wheat germ is more like a medicine. Therefore, I am making an exception for the wheat germ. I stirred some into an apple, nut, and berry mixture, which pleasantly tasted like apple pie. Within minutes of consumption, the roof of my mouth metamorphized into baby skin. The puffiness in my lips has held its ground, but I'm sure in time I will be able to look in the mirror and be satisfied with what I see.
