I knew he was on his way home. I was waiting. I had been planning *the moment* all day.
He walked in the door while I was in the kitchen.
I ran to greet him The dog ran to greet him. I arrived a close second…wrapping my arms around his neck. Determined to capture the moment, I felt the warmth of his lips on mine, his breath on my mouth, his heart on my sleeve. A butterfly danced in my stomach (yes!), and I kicked up a heel to celebrate. So delicious. Like a child, I want to do it again. So I push him back out the door…
Just kidding. I didn’t make him do his entrance again.
But I am getting better at just taking what I need. That breathy, almost touching, minty smelling, lip tugging, kiss.
That is some POWERFUL stuff, my friends.
I have to be honest: I’m addicted. So I’ve been analyzing: What is so powerful about a kiss? How can it “DO THAT?” Do different types of kisses have different impacts?
Well, today, I am planning a kissing binge and I’d better sort this all out before he gets home tonight:
TYPES OF KISSES
(brought to you by the letter K)
1. Kiss Ass
Or is that supposed to be kick ass? I can’t decide. Perhaps it could be both. Sort of like sucking up and then sucker punching. Wouldn’t he be surprised?
2. Kiss & Make Up
My favorite type of kiss. This is the kiss I still dream about. You see, “Angry Kissing” is on my BUCKET LIST. But this is difficult with a husband who never gets angry. So I have to provoke him. But then it’s just funny. You can’t laugh and be mad at the same time. Lather, rinse, repeat. I keep trying.
3. Good-bye Kiss
My least favorite type of kiss (insert saddest teary-eyed yellow headed icon here). BUT…if you make it toe-tingling, sensuous, and erotic, they will remember that kiss until you see each other again. It can be followed up. And that can’t ever be a bad thing. Absence makes the lips grow juicier…
4. French Kiss
Well, you either like it or you don’t. But you have to try it to know. I prefer my French kisses with a seasonally appropriate wine.
5. Kiss and Run
What better way to tell your spouse “THE game is on!” without using a single word. This is not about football, baseball, or most other kids of balls. Just kiss and run. (Better if naked.) (Unless the kids are around, then it’s just creepy.) (Anyone done this with the dog watching?)
6. Kiss of Death
This is not like a zombie kiss or anything. Gross. It’s not Romeo & Juliet, either. Do I have your attention? It’s personal. This one is my reminder that on this day, many years ago there was another kiss. It was a kiss of betrayal. That kiss sent one man to death, and I got to live instead. I am so grateful for that kiss. The fact that D-day happened on Good Friday just *blows me* away (see naughty number 7).
7. Inside Out
And now, for lovers only, I present you with an AMAZING song…dedicated to the POWER of a kiss. Listen, then go get your kiss, ladies…
