Pouting Lips

I finally experienced what it’s like to have pouting lips. It’s not the seductive type, though, a.k.a. Angelina Jolie lips, but the swollen/inflamed/enlarged one. The fact is I was bitten by a bug, not the laziness bug (although I think I’m showing symptoms of this; blame it on the long Christmas vacation), but a real insect, a very pesky one, when I was most vulnerable, that is, when I was asleep.

I was working on one of my essays yesterday when dreamland beckoned. I could hardly keep my eyes open and I couldn’t think straight. So I gave in. Since I work in the bedroom, it wasn’t hard getting into bed. I plopped onto it facedown and decided to take a 15-minute nap.

When I opened my eyes, I was back to work and didn’t feel anything unusual. It was only when I was having dinner when my tongue instinctively touched my upper lip that I felt something new, something strange and something out of the ordinary. I went straight to the bathroom, looked at myself in the mirror and lo and behold! An instant makeover!

I couldn’t say I was pleased, though. The nettlesome bug who smacked my upper lip might have smelled something fishy, err…beefy, as I had just finished my simple lunch of rice and sautéed corned beef when I dozed off. Or could it be that it caught a wisp of the strawberry lip moisturizer I applied early on?

The moral of the story is: Wipe your mouth (lips) after eating or better yet, keep your mouth closed while napping.

  1. You know…those pouty lips sure make it hard to watch a movie. I find myself looking at the lips wondering “Why on earth would you ever do that?” rather than actually watching the movie. I see so many that look they have gone wrong. So, I won’t be wasting my money. 🙂 Enjoy your blog!

  2. Hahaha…good you got stung on the lips and was able to emulate Angelina. Went I home to the Philippines a few years ago, I got bitten on my left eye so I was walking around with sunglasses even though it was dark and raining. The gossip in our barrio was, I was a stuck-up balikbayan trying to show-off my Rayban.

  3. Hahaha.. Good post. But I can’t close my mouth when I sleep, it just opens itself when I’m unconscious.. Funny.

This blog was originally put up to document my son’s growing-up milestones, all for posterity’s sake. But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here. This blog now chronicles my life as a mom and a wife and everything else in between. For collabs, please email tgfiguerres@yahoo.com.
