I remember my first kiss and magical isn't exactly the way I would describe it. More like terrifying. It was Ashley Jacobs birthday party and I was going with my boyfriend. We had been "going out" for about a month so I knew it was coming... soon.
I thought I was prepared. I had gum, chapstick, and I had talked it over with my more experienced friends. I decided I would just let it happen naturally and it would be perfect. I could handle it - how hard could it be?
Turns out my boyfriend had also been thinking about it. And plotting... with his friends. We were going to kiss that night and they were going to make sure of it. Well around 10 o'clock it still hadn't happened so they took their plan up a notch. Forget the subtly and romanticism, my mom was going to pick me up in 15 minutes and they were running out of time! We were sitting together in a room full of people and all of a sudden there was a brown fuzzy blanket over my head, over our heads!
Then there was chanting - kiss, kiss, kiss, kiss.
And then I felt it - it was wet and slimy... all over my cheek. We missed. I was mortified. I wanted to run away, but I didn't want to come out from under the blanket and face the awaiting crowd either so I gave it another shot. And we kissed... on the lips.
