There is an old saying,
“An Instant On The LIps, A lifetime on the Hips”
I heard this often growing up, as I did have a sweet tooth and love my food.I am a foodie and food photographer. I have a Bachelor of Education and once was a primary school teacher. In December 2000 I moved to Tasmania and started a food blog and when I returned to my home town of Wollongong I continued the journaling. In 2018 the hosting company deleted the website but there are old entries at aninstantonthelips.blogspit.com
An Instant on the Lips can also be related to saying things in the heat of temper or when in a stressful moment or environment. Some things, when said, cannot be unsaid. Some things stay on your psyche for life, affecting your self-esteem, life choices and in other ways. This is certainly true for children and young adults.
