Monday Memories: First Kiss

Since it is almost Valentines Day, I will write this Monday Memories about my husband.

When we started dating, he had this wonderful idea that our first kiss would be on our wedding day. OK. I knew that wasn't going to happen, but I learned early on in our relationship that it was best to let him express his weird ideas. He would get over them on his own.

Well, one day we went for a walk. (That is what we did for a date, since we were both broke, but in love.) He stopped walking and turned toward me. Then, he got really nervous like and looked me straight in the eyes. He said. "Can I give you a kiss". Oh my goodness! I had waited for this day. My heart was racing, but I managed to say "Yes". He handed me a Hershey's chocolate kiss and busted up laughing.

Now, here is the real shocker - I still married him after he did this awful prank. It's been over 19 years since this happened and this is the first time that I can laugh about it. By the way, he didn't wait until our wedding day to kiss me.

Oh I can imagine how mad and dissapointed you must have been! Great memory!
Mine will be up later. Would be great if you could leave a link again.

I haven't heard this anecdote before from you, but can I share what your dad did during our dating years? We were sitting in his car behind the church and I could feel something was up with him and suspected he was going to pop the question! In the middle of our kissing he stops and says, "Do you paint your toe nails?" He said that to keep himself from proposing to me and it worked!
With love, MOM

Hi Shari,

Thanks for your comment on my blog. What a cute story. I probably would have slugged him ;-)

We took lots of walks while we were dating, too.

that is one of the funniest stories I have ever read!! as I was reading I was anxious to read the ending and I was thinking to myself how romantic, and sweet....then came the chocolate!!! hahaha, I'm glad you are able to laugh about it now, I know then you were probably fuming inside, I know I would have been! and I love the fact that you two are happy and still married, it gives me hope, I know its possible my parents have been married for 28 years now!
