Copain opened the front door, ready to leave for work. "A tout à l'heure, babe," he said, and he leaned in for a kiss.
"Oh, hey, you put on your chapstick," I said. (Copain loves the American brand Chapstick).
"Yep, I love this stuff! And you put on your..." he stopped to think..."red lips?"
"Lipstick," I corrected him.
"Oh right, lipstick."
And then he was out the door.
