Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
Who gave you your first romantic kiss? What do you remember about it?
My first real kiss came from a boy named Tim when I was in the eighth grade. Tim came over to my house, and we went in my bedroom to talk. My mom yelled at me to keep the door open, but defiant child I was, I closed it.
Tim moved closer and closer and suddenly his lips were on mine and his tongue was in my mouth! Gross! What was he doing?
That got his tongue out of my mouth.
Tim and I were boyfriend/girlfriend for a few weeks, and then I think I tired of him. He was kind of cute, but not all that intelligent.
He didn't take it well when I broke up with him, and he hassled me for a while.
My 35th high school reunion was a couple of weeks ago. I didn't attend. I didn't recognize the names of most of the people who would be there.
But I did recognize the names of many of the people on the deceased list.
Tim was among them.
Now, how about you: Who gave you your first romantic kiss? What do you remember about it?
Infinities of love,
