It is with a heavy heart that I announce that I have lost my lips. I'm not sure when it happened. I know when I retired almost a year ago I was wearing lip stick or lip gloss. I must have had some then.
Here is me today. Up close and no makeup. Ok, not attractive I know but we are dealing with reality here. There is very little fullness to the top lip, hardly any points to the cupid's bow, and wrinkles starting above the upper lip. And just as bad, the corners are turning down so I look like I'm frowning if I don't deliberately smile.
Then if I even try to smile, VANISHED. GONE. NO LIPS. Ok, maybe a tiny line. If I put on red lipstick it would look like someone had drawn two straight red lines under my nose.
How sad is this. Maybe the collagen from my lips has fallen into those jowls trying to form on my chin line.
Oh well, I knew it was coming. I just didn't know it had gotten here. Happy 65th Birthday to me.
No mirrors were broken while taking these pictures.
