SoCS — Fat Lip

a5542a60-10fb-4ac0-b518-db4e781e521e.jpegWhen I was a kid, having a fat lip meant that someone hauled off and slugged you right in your kisser.

These days, having a fat lip means that you went to the doctor to get a Botox injection into your lip.835F1A35-BD90-44DC-81D7-5DC455828F61

Written for this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt from Linda G. Hill, where we’re supposed to use the word “lip” (or words containing “lip”) in our posts.

    I’ve dealt with a lot of medical stuff, but sticking needles in my lip? No thanks.

    Those collagen injections look AWFUL on most people. And sometimes they go awry…see Mickey Rourke for one example of where that kind of thing really f*cked up someone’s face. Kenny Rogers is another…there are dozens of celebrities that probably regret trying to get the ‘bee stung or full lip” look for themselves if they aren’t born with it.

    Yikes! Speaking of fat lips, I’d like to give one to WP. It’s saying to follow people I’ve been following and asking me to reblog in before commenting, then won’t accept the login I’ve used forever. I see the same here. What is up?😫

      I think WordPress needs to figure out how to address all of the issues with the app.

    In my case, it meant the horse had tossed his head and I was leaning forward, so he whacked me in the mouth. Do you know how HARD a horse’s head is? And strong?

    Of course, everyone was sure Garry had slugged me. It made me smirk. I denied it, but no one believed me.

      I can’t say that I’ve ever been smacked by a horse’s head.

    I see and feel enough shots just from regular doctor visits I don’t want to do one on purpose, Besides I don’t think it looks good anyway.

    Either a punch or one of those painful, no-show zits that you foolishly tried to pop.

    What? Just me?
