My First Kiss…
Well, I'm not going to tell you about my first kiss. Honestly, it was so strange and unforgettable that I can't even remember the exact details. But! I met my husband, who've I've been married to for almost 11 years now, when I was a senior in high school. We went to different schools. We both lived on the Fl\Ga border - me Ga, him Fl - and wound up working at the same fast food place after school. Well, our towns aren't exactly friendly with each other so when we started working together, it was not love at first sight. J
But one thing led to another. I realized that he was not a jerk as first assumed and he realized that I was not so bad either. We got stuck working together a lot because we could only work after school. So after many days of staring at him over the burger board and fry vat, I was thrilled when he finally asked me out! Only to realize it was a group date. And then the next one was a group date, and the next one, and the next one. J I was starting to wonder if I had something wrong with me. And then one day our 'third wheel' cancelled on us and my now husband asked if I still wanted to go out, even though it would just be us. He was so nervous!! I then realized why he'd been reluctant to be alone with me on dates; he wasn't sure if I liked him or was just 'hanging out' as friends. So I whole heartedly said yes.
And from then on, we went on dates all by ourselves. Now, we still didn't have our first kiss for quite some time. I think we were going into our 3rd month of group dates\just us dates before we finally locked lips. Let me set the mood for you. It was a dark, chilly theater in Kingsland, GA. We were in the very back row and the theater was empty, save my brother and his girlfriend who opted to sit up front. Galaxy Quest was playing on the screen. And though that movie is freaking hilarious, I had other things on my mind. I looked at him and he was already looking at me. We just went for it.
I remember everything so vividly, I could be right back in that theater now. I remember thinking the stupid arm rest was in the way. I remember thinking "How on earth on we kissing? Who moved first?" I remember thinking that he had the softest lips ever. I remember that it took us a while to come up and I had to re-watch Galaxy Quest at another time because we didn't see the ending. I remember that I never had to wait for another kiss again. He was always ready to plant one on me and was done being nervous. And I loved it!
The thing is that I really don't know who kissed who first. I knew if I waited we’d both get nervous and probably not do it but I don't remember being the one to lean in. I'd later learn from my now husband that I surprised 'attack kissed' him. Oh well, it got the job done. J
I hope you all have as good of luck as me. My hubs is one in a million, best down the best kisser and most sweetest guy on this planet. He's my significant and if I could have, we'd have imprinted the first time he handed me a burger over the counter.
