Bragging Brings Bad Karma

Lesson learned.  Well, this time at least.  I got all braggy about going on a trip sans kids.  And I got all braggy about floating in a lazy river with drinks in hand.  And I got all braggy about getting the house we wanted.  

Well thanks a lot MISTER Karma, because now I can't brag anymore, at least not verbally.  'Cause I seem to have a bad case of effing fever blisters on my effing bottom lip that make it effing miserable to eat, nag, brag, talk, or sip a salted margarita glass.  It looks a little something like this, but not on my tush.  It looks like lip-injection gone bad.  

Fuckity fuck it hurts.  So, no vacation pictures.  Just me all complaining today.  With lots of meds.  And a little sympathy.  A little.    

So, it turns out you're not supposed to be in the sun when shit like this gets on your lip.  Thanks Arizona sunshine.  My tan lines are digging you, my lip, notsomuch.

Sorry to hear Karma has swung by your house.

Hoping he leaves really soon!

And glad to hear that you had a great time on vacation. Floating the lazy river with a *beverage* sounds delightful! :)

CC said...

OUCH!!! So sorry :(

Uh oh. I wish you would have warned me before my big brag post. Now I'll be worried for weeks.

Seriously, though, I really hope your lips heal fast.

Your mom said you have beautiful Angelina Jolie lips. I know you look beautiful. I'm so sorry it hurts and you have to drink your margaritas sans salt. Switch to Cosmopolitans. Love and kisses (on the cheek).

Oww. Having had a similar experience I know exactly how miserable you are. Did you get some Zovirax or Denavir ointment from a Dr.? If not, you must.

karma can be a little witch sometimes....

Denise said...

I agree with Cheri - just switch to Cosmos and I hope you feel better soon!! :O))

Chrissy said...

Ugh...Bit of a damper, but chin up (if the sun's not out), you're still on a relaxing vacation with your hubby and NO KIDS! (I'm a wee bit envious, messed up lip and all).

debawriter said...

Ouch. I hate those.
(Not much help, I know, but hopefully the commiseration is some small consolation.)

Karma is a cruel b**ch. And she works for the Irony Gods, so she's pretty crafty on top of it.

Sorry for you !
And I forgot to tell you that in my first comment 10 minutes ago : your kids are really adorable !
And you are so lucky to live in San Diego !!
(hope it will helps your karma !)

OHmommy said...

Oh no. I get those all the time.

Hope your lips feel better. Ouchy. I do. ((hugs))

Amy said...

That's a biatch! Not fair ... not fair! You don't deserve these little buggers.

I hope you are still able to enjoy your vacation. =)

Lisa said...

What a bummer--maybe they'll be some Hollywood celeb recovering from a lip job you can hang with?

Wishing you a speedy recovery ;)

Amy said...

Oh no! You poor thing, hope you kick karma's ass real soon!

Trish said...

You can take that nasty link off anytime...ewww. You really DO look more like Angelina Jolie with your puffy, pouty lips than a blistery bottom-side.

I love you. I am sorry it hurts. I think you can rinse your mouth with half Benadryl and half Maalox. That is what the Dr. told me once when Hen got something similar.

Love You!

Lisa said...

That stinks. Seriously...big time stinko!!!

Hope your lip gets to feeling better, and hey - at least you looked good in your bikini, right?

dkuroiwa said...

Oh...I am feeling your pain...though I haven't had one in a while (she typed whilst knocking a few times on the wooden wall!!), I used to get them all the time...and yeah, vacation time was a "popular" time to get them.

I'm with Jenn...get yourself some Zovirax...now...it's a bit pricey, but for me, nothing works as well!!

Damn that Karma anyway...

Jennifer H said...

Damn Arizona sun. I feel your pain.

Just to be safe, I'm going to stick with my current program of bitching a lot. And still being seriously envious of your new gorgeous house.

Angela said...

Ouch.
