You just pointed with your lips!

I just caught my husband pointing with his lips last night. This is a custom in Latin America. I guess I had never noticed it before until I starting reading on other people's blogs about it. So we had a good laugh about it! Have you ever seen anyone point with their lips? Do you have a story to share?


  1. OK, I need a pic or a video to demonstrate this... :)

  2. Yes, lip pointing! I was taken aback by this custom at first. I thought the guard at one of the places I frequented was throwing kisses! He was harmless. He was lip pointing to my car. Stranger still, I lip point at times with my students and fellow teachers. I need to write a blog on lip pointing. It usually involves a sharp upward nod too.


I enjoy your comments, so if you are reading this, say hi!
