Beeswax Lip Balm
Tag # 000693
In Feb. of 1999 I had more than 20 keys on my keychain..
So many keys that my front pocket bulged with the awkward
shaped institutional "do not duplicate" keys.
Every time I would take my keys out I would inadvertently
pull out my change and assorted pocket contents. This
balm would hit the tile floor and roll down the hallway.
I had to stop carrying anything in my pockets except
for my Keys.
By that summer I had only one key left on the ring..
And in July I accidentally locked that solitary key
in my car somewhere at the base of Mt. Hood in Oregon..
Only having one key... is a great feeling..
It lasted until I arrived in Iowa and on the third
day here the Photography Department issued me 8 keys
and 16 or so keys later, I have more keys than I did
