I'm meant to be singing today and I've made a mess of my mouth...any help?

#1
I'm in a bit of trouble.

Basically I decided to make myself some tea a few hours back. Being the idiot I am, I tried to drink it too fast and ended up scalding my mouth. I've dealt with the burns but now I have a new problem.

Normally on Mondays I sing and play at a Bible study group. Only problem is that at the moment my mouth is a mess- my top lip is all swollen and my bottom lip is covered in little blisters. I can't even shut my mouth properly.

ANyone got any idea how on earth I can sing in this mess?

I've already done this....


I also can't pull out of this cause I'm the only bassist

Dude, just come clean, and tell them flat out, you can't sing. Tell them to look at your mouth if you have to. They can't force you to sing if your mouth is seriously ****ed up.

Go back in time and record yourself, then lipsync like the pros.

It'll be between you and the Lord...I'm sure he'll understand.

Don't go to bible study.


Don't go to church.


Especially not on sundays.

So I had to take a massive dump, and I went in the bassment. So it's been down there for a while and the stench is terrible and i think it's seeping into the floor.

I guess I'm kind of like a hippie. I'm anti-war, do drugs, and like communism.
Your not a hippie, just a ****ing moron.

ive heard this stuff called c-min works really well. Loads of protein and salt to dry out those blisters.

Just get some C-min and rub it all over you lips.

Wow, that really wasn't smart of you at all.
I'd just come clean, maybe you can play and they can sing along if they know the song.

Yes I know, I'm a dumbass.

I was really hoping this thread was going to be about something else....

Anyway, just go, play bass, and tell them you can't sing. Even professional singers cancel shows when their mouths/throats are screwed up.

I disagree, I'm a smartass.

I wouldn't perform if your mouth is messed up, but I don't know how you would alleviate the little blisters and what not.

Quote by Shea Donoghue


Then, about two minutes later of just plowing, I can feel it coming. She's still moaning and rolling back, and then I pull out. I grab her by her hair, pull her head up, and yell out:
"BOOM, HEADSHOT!"
