Yesterday, Big biffed it on the hardwood, leaving his mouth a bloody mess. The inside of his lip looks like hamburger, and he shredded the little thingie that attaches his upper lip to his gum (I'm sure it has a name!). The result is that his normally quite thin upper lip looks like it has been subject to some rather poorly done collagen injections. Poor kid!
The picture just doesn't do the lip justice. It is bigger than it looks, and is much purpler than it appears here:
He kept sucking on his lip, like fat-lipped boys do, to try to soothe it and, I'm sure, because it felt so weird.
