First Kiss

Growing up is filled with firsts. First time to ride a bike, first bloody nose, first bee sting, first swim, first time to get beat up, first girl friend, and then there is that first kiss – Wowzer!
My sister was 5 years older than me. One day I heard her talking to one of her girl friends, they were both laughing really hard. A boy had kissed my sister on a date and it was so obvious to my sister that he had never kissed a girl before. They were laughing so hard that tears were coming down their checks.
That scared me to death. I had never kissed a girl before. Was I going to be laughed at like that the first time I kissed a girl? For years the sound of that laughing haunted me.
A year or two later I managed to find a girl friend. I would think all day about kissing her and when the time came I broke out in a cold sweat and would have no part of it. I dated that girl for a year and a half and never kissed her once. She tried so hard to put us into situations where it was the right time, the right place, where we were totally alone. But, she never got my kiss. I think she finally just gave up and dumped me.
Her father was a big mucky muck in the Seattle Police Department. One day he started being so nice to me. Years later talking to his wife I found out my girl friend had complained to her mother how I had never kissed her Well wife told Police mucky muck, father, and I became mucky mucks new best friend.
Occasionally my friends would ask me if I kissed my girlfriend yet. When I told them no, they would ridicule and laugh at me. Having them laugh at me was way better than having a girl laugh at me especially for that reason.
Just so you know, eventually I did kiss a girl and maybe she had a good laugh I don’t know. I hope you got one.
I told my son the same story in hopes it would have a similar result…he’s never told me how that tactic worked. D’OH!

Ah, you were every father's dream. Can see why Muckity Muck glumed on to you.
My first kiss was a mouth wiping yucky experience. The second however from the same boy 12 hours later, was given with gentleness and in a lovely setting. It was wonderful. It is all in the presentation guys. I wrote about it on June 15. We never forget that first one do we?

My first kiss was a sneak attack - a fly-by. He never stopped, just waltzed up, smack, and he was gone. I had to chase him down to deck him.

Arkansas Patti: I read your first Kiss Post - that was well written and fun to read.

Betty: Did you catch the theif and make him pay?

Dianne said...

my first kiss was the same as Betty's experience. Arthur grabbed me on the stairs at school, kissed me and ran

I am the oldest of 4 - 2 brothers, I wonder if over hearing me talking about boys ruined their early years
Oh well - too late now ;)

Yes Grayquill - it's not all like Hollywood that's for sure.
June in Oz

Dianne: Grabbed you huh? I wonder if Arthur was on a dare.

June Saville: Nothing is like Hollywood or OZ but fun places to visit.
Thanks for stopping by.

Ha ha ha. You actually dated a girl for a year and a half and never kissed? I'm sure that would be some kinda record in the history of kisses!

By the way, my first one was at a movie theater and bet it was special AND NOT AT ALL FUNNY! (or so I like to believe ;))

blunt edges: I won't even try to ruin your false memory -
