Photo a Day Challenge: June 4 – Lips

challenge lips

Well, this could be awkward.

Today’s word in the Photo a Day Challenge: Lips. Hmm. It’s not easy to snap a random shot of a stranger’s lips. Taking a pic of my own lips? Not good form. A recent post I wrote about my face was one of the slowest for traffic. Ever.

So, to find lips, but not on my face. Or a stranger’s.

I told Grace of my uncomfortable pursuit as we drove to the grocery store for pulled chicken barbecue (check out the recipe here!). “Maybe I’ll see a Rolling Stones sticker,” I said. Trust me, I was on the lookout.

As I put the finishing touches on the front door’s paint job later, Grace joined me.

She wore a Rolling Stones T-shirt! She might not have as cool a T-shirt collection as, say, Desmond, of Tamara (Like) Camera fame, but she’s close. And she’s stellar at rescuing daddy before he approaches a lady on the wine aisle at Food Lion.

“Hi. So, I’m doing this photo challenge … got a minute?”

[Also, apparently, Tyrannosaurs Rex had lips.]

      I feel like I chose the right door, Lyn.

    Audrey has such beautiful quotes.

    1. Eli Pacheco says:

      Didn’t she? Marie dressed as her for Halloween. Stellar choice.

  4. Kisma says:

    I don’t know what I love more about this post, the picture, your struggle to find lips or the Hepburn quote.

    Nicely done!

    1. Eli Pacheco says:

      It all mixes up in the same bowl, Tiff. I have no idea what to do with today – bubbles – but it’ll reveal itself. Thanks!

  5. Holly says:

    I wish I had thought of that, I have a Stones shirt in my closet. Somewhere. I mean, I think it was unpacked…

    Well done!

    1. Eli Pacheco says:

      I wish I could think of something clever today for brushes, Holly. You should always have your Stones shirt at the ready. Good luck!

  6. Christine says:

    Your opening line was exactly what I was thinking when I read your title on my feed. ๐Ÿ™‚ so glad Grace was there to bail you out.

    1. Eli Pacheco says:

      It’s not “fumbling around on the feminine hygiene aisle in Walmart at 2 a.m.” awkward, but it’s close, Christine. Grace to the rescue, once again. Great to see you! I need to visit

    Wiuld lipstick have counted? Steven Tyler has a wicked set of lips too.

    1. Eli Pacheco says:

      Lipstick could factor into the equation. I’d prefer to think of Liv’s lips than Steven’s!

      1. stomperdad says:

        LOL Yeah. Liv has way better lips.

      2. Eli Pacheco says:

        Figure Steven is tracking this and will have someone come after us, Eric?

      3. stomperdad says:

        Maybe he’ll send Liv.

      4. Eli Pacheco says:

        He’s definitely coming after us now, Eric. Well, you anyway.

      5. stomperdad says:

        Hopefully he brings Liv with him ๐Ÿ™‚

      6. Eli Pacheco says:

        We’re so dead, Eric.

  8. Rorybore says:

    When I saw the title, the very first thing I thought of was Rolling Stones!! Awesome job.

    1. Eli Pacheco says:

      Time is on my side, Rore. Thans!
