It’s like my lips are shedding, dropping flakes of skin to my absent-minded chewing – except the absent-minded chewing is entirely motivated by the fact that my lips feel like they’re shedding stuff. It has been highly annoying. Worse, I don’t think the effect is visible (apart from a sore at the corner of my mouth). It’s all in my head, my flaky lips.
Now I will open my mouth and waggle my jaws like I am trying to speak French into gale-force winds.
