Of course, before all this excitement transpired, I'd promised to take my kids out for ice cream, and despite my rapidly swelling disfigurement, they refused to let me reschedule our date. Btw, I'm going to take this moment to rant my way down a rabbit trail. I hate it when people are polite and try not to look. Seriously, lips the size of a cantaloupe are spectacularly out of the norm, so pretending not to notice is sort of ridiculous. I'd much rather have them gape outright and ask, "What the heck happened to you?" so that I can tell them it was a chick fight, but "you should see the other gal!"

But is that mouth really sexy? I mean, I like bees, but I wouldn't kiss that.
Of course, this look can be achieved by injecting various chemicals such as toxins or silicon, but it can also be gained (less permanently) through various makeup techniques and creams.
|A small sampling of what comes up when Googling bee-stung lips|
Of course, my favorite page titles involve getting bee-stung lips "naturally." A quick perusal of several articles shows that these methods involve the use of things like cayenne pepper, cinnamon scrubs, and lip plumpers (which often contain some bee venom). However, I noticed that nobody recommends the most natural way of all... which is to get stung by an actual bee.
