Risk of oral hpv?

Last week me and my family went to my nieces birthday party. My niece happened to have warts on her hand and I noticed that my father touched her warts a few times.  Everyone washed their hands when we got home however.      A week later i happened to wash my lips with hand soap, and I am concerned. If my dad used this soap after touching my nieces warts. Could hpv spread from the soap pump onto my lips? Or am I thinking irrationally? I know hpv can live on surfaces, but nobody really knows for how long.  Should I be concerned about getting oral hpv now, or is the chance so minuscule that I shouldn’t worry?  Will I be okay to kiss my boyfriend?
