Lips and laundry
I visited the hospital this morning.
My periodontist gave me a referral because she noticed that my under lip is
a bit thick and there’s a small, white spot on my under lip. It’s been there for
over 10 years so I didn’t worry much, but she insisted I would let a surgeon
have a look at it.
The surgeon, a young and handsome guy, read the referral letter.
He looked at my lip.
He said something to me and then suddenly,
in the middle of a sentence he said:
“do you do that a lot ma’am”
“You just bite your lip”
He laughed, examined the spot once again and you know what it is?
I have callouses on my lip. No kidding!
I spend years, quietly biting my lip!
He even took a few photos of it, to use in a lecture.
The advice he gave: ‘Don’t bite your lip and it will go away eventually’.
Yeah, right. That’s easier said then done.
How do I break this habit?
I don’t wear lipstick very often, but when I came home I put a lot of lipstick on.
Maybe that will help to remind me not to bite my lip?
I might become famous as ‘the lipstick lady’….
Any other ideas to overcome this habit?
I had no time for art this week.
My muse sits weeping in the attic.
She wants to play…

I will call her when I’m ready for her.
I did write a haiku though.
|Lakens in de wind
zacht wiegende voorboden
van een schone nacht
|white sheets in the wind
gentle swaying harbingers
of a limpid night
