A Kiss...

A kiss is that which you cannot give without taking, and cannot take without giving.

It is a contraction of the mouth due to an enlargement of the heart.

It is a course of procedure cunningly devised for the mutual stoppage of speech at a moment when words are superfluous.

It is lip service to love and the anatomical juxtaposition of two orbicularis oris muscles in a state of contraction. A kiss is a peculiar proposition.

Of no use to one, yet absolute bliss to two.

The small boy gets it for nothing, the young man has to steal it, and the old man has to buy it.

It is the baby's right, the lover's privilege, and the hypocrite's mask.

To a young girl, faith. A married woman, hope. To an old maid, charity.

A kiss can be a comma, a quotation mark or an exclamation point. It is also a pleasant reminder that two heads are better than one.

  8. Dear Sandee, Well said...so true.

    PS, I checked the calorie count of the Kenn-Wah decadence protein bars for you. The coconut almond and cayenne cinnamon have 198 calories while the organic chocolate chia has 195.

    Blessings dear one,

  9. It's one of those things I dreaded, as a young man, at a family reunion, when Aunt Meg had too much to drink.

  16. Buy them? BUY Them? Is that what I'm doing wrong? It's also the most pleasant way I know of to spread germs.

  18. Great thoughts, Sandee. Hadn't been so philosophical about kissing before.
    Oh to be a small boy again! LOL
    But you know there is a lady who comes to help here at the house who first kisses Mrs. Jim and then she always hugs and kisses me. Not romantic though, just her way of greeting.

  19. Kissing is beneficial...unless they have morning breath.

  20. A kiss is just a kiss
    and a peck is just a bird kiss
    and that's all!

    All of those are great. Some time when I dare to think of days gone by I recall my wife's kiss, but then I must leave those times and jump back to reality. Memories are great but also very painful.

  21. Also a great way to exchange viruses.

  22. Sandee, this post confirms how sweet and funny you are.
    My favorite kiss is my son's kisses (pssst don't tell my husband)! He's 9 and is now embarrass to kiss me in public, but I take every opportunity to get one at home.
