Do you know what the narrow line between the bottom of your nose and the tip of your lip is called? I bet if you ask an average human being, he wouldn’t know. Yes, it’s part of the face, but usually when we teach our kids the parts of the body, we usually just skip it and go from “nose” to “lips” or “mouth.”
Well, as you can probably guess, while we were vacationing, our daughter was identifying her body parts one day when suddenly she asked (pointing to that part): “Daddy, what’s this?” Since Hubby didn’t know the answer, he told her to ask Mommy. Of course, I replied “I don’t know.” She then asked the same question to my sister, my mom, and hubby’s family...all of whom answered the same thing. When we asked our friends, some guessed cleavage or cleft nose.
Because of my curiosity, I decided to check the internet for the answer, and fortunately I found it on Yahoo! Answers. Thanks to my daughter, I learned something new.
By the way, just in case you’re wondering, the answer is PHILTRUM.
