Have you always loved it? Or just now?It makes people who aren't in love feel really, really bad. (Unless their hope springs a little more immediately than eternal.) I hope that's not one of its attractions.
I don't feel bad when I see other people are happy! I am reminded of the value of good things, even if I myself have lost them. I will say that public kissing should be done in an aesthetically pleasing way. For example, no tongue exposure.
When I leave the house today at 11:00 I'm going to the hospital to have a Lyme disease test. I don't think I'll kiss anybody at the hospital, they might be sick.
She pressed her lips to mind. —a typoHow many years I must have yearnedfor someone’s lips against mind.Pheromones, newly born, were floatingbetween us. There was hardly any air.She kissed me again, reaching that placethat sends messages to toes and fingertips,then all the way to something like home.Some music was playing on its own. from “The Kiss” by Stephen Dunn
My wife and I are both working from home today. I shall make a point to kiss in public when we either go out to lunch, or take a walk with the dog. We can't do both--we only have an hour.
Everyone is waiting!
Holy tonsil hockey Batman!Mandy is really gonna lose her shit over this one!
For example, no tongue exposure.1:45 - 3:30
Oh, spring. Oh, love. We all feel it, even in California.
I recall a day I was teaching my wife to play golf. She is very alert to details, and she would press down any cleat marks on the green in the line of her putt. Then she began to step on the edge of the cup too, which would depress it. I tactfully advised her that "pressing the lip" would be seen as cheating if we played with others. That shocked her, and now she likes to joke about how much she enjoys pressing the lip. It must be a female thing.
now I know why you are looking so much cuter lately-Diana Krall - The Look of Lovehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNp79hF-xZw
"Tip" isn't really a word that belongs with "head", unless you're Zippy.
I'm with you, Ann...though even better than public kissing is the look people who love each other have as they approach one another to embrace or kiss after an absence (this can be lovers or friends or parents and children--it doesn't matter). I wish Americans kissed on both cheeks as a greeting too.It's why I can watch the beginning and end of the movie "Love Actually" over and over again. That's such a sweet feeling...reunion.
I rather soured on PDAs when I realized that one lover only acted lovey dovey when we were around his "other" crowd to ward off comments in front of me about his other girlfriend.
Look Althouse-You're really pissing me of.You know I start to tell people about this blog...And, you can only go on for about two minutes before you realize you sound like your grandma when she went senile and thought her soap operas were real.So ya, thanx.
Oh please tell me you aren't going all sterotypical female, giddy with love.Next you are going to tell us you walk around girlishly gigggling all the time now.....Pull yourself together woman!
Would it help to remind you that I don't want a wedding?
To see a nearly perfect woman break into a sudden, ecstatic smile just because you have come into her field of vision is one of those things that make the game worth the candle. Public kissing is kind of ostentatious. Never wear a Rolex while doing volunteer work at the the soup kitchen. Cheap feels under the table are kind of cool and help cement the bond.
I think public kissing is great but public breast cupping always brings a squeal and a loving smack from your girl and a smile to every dude who sees it and wishes he had the balls to do it to his lady. Just sayn'
Would it help to remind you that I don't want a wedding?Well, darn. Even over at Roy's place there was speculation there might be a drunk blogged wedding.I don't even drink. But some of the drunk blogging during the election was hilarious.Mmmmm.
Okay, when are we going to see "The Althouse Guide to Manners"? Emily Post for the new millenium:1. Men should not wear shorts in public.2. Public kissing, if carried on in a restrained manner is not only permissible, but should be encouraged.I invite more regular readers to contribute to this future best seller.By the way, I believe Ms. Althouse's attitude about shorts is based in part upon the climate of her native land. SHE may think khacki pants are cool enough, but has she spent a summer in seed corn country?
Khaki, for gosh sakes.
I don't want a weddingEven a five minute exchange of vows in a clerk's office is a wedding. In the professor's place I would invite my kids and my best friend to witness it, then have a party (so that my friends could welcome my spouse) at a later time.
Now public ass rubbing can be done is a suitably subtle and discreet manner so it is appropriate in such diverse areas as the bookstore and the classroom. However public nipple tweaking must wait for the proper moment.Unless it is you girl doing it to you. Then everyone just laughs. Life is unfair sometimes.
Would it help to remind you that I don't want a wedding?Then you and Meade are just going to have to get married and blog about it afterward. But the advice will keep coming until the deed is done.Now Troop, about that party...
One of life's little paradoxes is that if you're in a position to get a PDA you don't need your Palm any more.
Z-man: Good one!
I think everyone should fuck in public.Go out and fuck in public today.Let's start a revolution.
I am going to make out with the rare clumbers today and see what kind of reaction we get.I don't think there is anything wrong with cupping a breast in public either. As a matter of fact I recommend it. What's the big deal?Or going down on someone when they are driving. That is hot and should be done by all drivers...if they are hot.
What I don't want to see though is gays showing any type of public affection. That is just wrong and gross. Yuck.Or dykes on bikes with their titties hanging out for the world to see. Disgusting.
If two really hot girls want to make out in public I am ok with that though, but who isn't?
When I was 16, my first girlfriend and I were kissing at my high school, laying on the grass outside the principal's office. We were told to stop and threatened with discipline if we were caught doing it again. This is one of at least four awesome kissing in public moments in my life, with four different women, two of whom I married. Really, the better word for it would be "making out in public." I reflect so happily on these moments. I remember every detail. When you're kissing someone in public, heedless to your surroundings or any possible sense of embarrassment, it means you are really, really in love with them. You are experiencing the "love is a drug" moment. It eventually is replaced by something equally good, but less crazed. But that's okay. The shared memory of when you just wanted to smash your face into their face, you loved them so much, is like a booster rocket for the relationship.
Speaking of lesbians I think Portia de Rossi is going through a phase.
I vividly remember this couple who would make out after school. I was in elementary school and they were in high school. Their names were Penny and Joe. All the little elementary school kids in my neighborhood would watch everyday as they kissed after school. I lived right across from the school and loved watching them.I wonder where Penny and Joe are now?
Can a Kissing Trees Cafe be far behind? We know how much AA likes the tall trees. Trees need love too.
O hope you let Sir Archy down easy. :)Let's see some pictures of Meade!
"Would it help to remind you that I don't want a wedding?"What does Meade want in this matter?He said Aug 1, if the kids could be there with you on that date. Whatever you two decide, go for it...And... blessings to you both
Would it help to remind you that I don't want a wedding?If you happen to change your mind, remember that you have a bandleader among your commenters. The distance thing isn't necessarily an issue...
