George Washington Rule #16

This week's excerpt from George Washington's Rules is Rule #16:

16thDo not Puff up the Cheeks, Loll not out the tongue, rub the Hands, or beard, thrust out the lips, or bite them or keep the Lips too open or too Close.

 In creating my translation I am going to remember that initially, when George Washington created his rules, he was just ten years old. He continued using the rules, revising them a bit as he aged.

Do not puff your cheeks up with air, or stick out your tongue, or rub your hands or beard. Do not purse out your lips, or bite them, or keep them too wide open or too closed.
What's "too closed"? I have no clue!
