That's a good question! The skin's not hard or tight around my mouth and it never has been, but my lips still got replaced by those deep lines. Oh, well - we'll just have to keep smiling I guess. That way, no one notices but us. :D

Lots of Hugs to ya,

I don't know whether to cry for you or laugh along with you. You know sometimes I do both. This just gives me validation that I am once again not crazy. When we eat out in public, I have to choose my food carefully and get ALOT to drink so that I don't get too much caught in the sides of my mouth. Do you know that when I was in college I used to do stupid party tricks like see how many oreos I could fit into my mouth at one time? And yes, if you are wondering, the most I could fit was 32 oreos! Now I can't even fit one whole oreo!

Anyway, my husband kept telling me that I was reading too much into this and now I know that I am not. I am going to show him this. Don't get to prove him wrong too many times. Makes me feel good about it for something.

I hope that your day goes well and you don't have any worries.
