The Kiss©

(By Wayne L. Misner,

  The Kiss = a touch or caress of the lips as an expression of affection, greeting, respect. Kisses can be innocent, pure, friendly, loving, or intensely passionate. Another definition might be = A kiss is the contraction of the mouth due to the expansion of the heart.

  The late Louis Armstrong hit song started with these words;

Give me a kiss to build a dream on
And my imagination will thrive upon that kiss
Sweetheart, I ask no more than this
A kiss to build a dream on

  One of the easiest ways to express affection is a kiss. Kissing is a universal language that requires no translation to get its message across.

  A kiss, when all is said, is what? A farewell or maybe a hello. A peck on a cheek or two lips that meet. A first time kiss, the last time kiss, a quickie or the long lingering one. A kiss that is stolen or the mutual one. Maybe the kiss of love, of joy, and of sorrow.

  When talking about kissing, the first priority should be avoiding bad kisses. Some examples of bad kisses may be; the excess slobber, the more tongue, the blood drawn, no kiss at all (known as the miss), sucker fish kisser, and mashing, to name a few.

  Kissing is an art form. What is a good kiss? Well, it is the opposite of the bad kisses and it must always start with brushing your teeth, clean breath, and moist lips. However, other than that, I’m at a stage in life that all kisses would be considered great kisses. In fact, I haven’t had a bad kiss in 5 years. One of the best things about kissing is that it never gets boring! There are so many different ways to vary a simple kiss that will keep you occupied for hours!

  It is said that a kiss can send many different messages. (I do believe that a kiss can express a story. Her lips on his could tell him better than all her stumbling words.) A kiss is a noun that is used as a conjunction; it is more common than proper; it is spoken in the plural and it is applicable to all.

I have read that, “A kiss can be the comma, the question mark and makes an explosive exclamation point”. Most of the time I can’t read lips unless they are touching mine.

  I do love the French custom of kissing ladies' hands - after all, I must start somewhere.

  As my eyes wonder around the room I see your lips look sad, I’ll bet with a little magic; I can kiss them into a smile.

  The kissing facts prove kissing to be far more than a simple science. Just as no two people are alike, so are no two kisses alike. Like snowflakes, each one is different from the one before and the one after. For someone like me, who is going to the gym each day to help stay in good shape and to lose weight, kissing burns calories, 2-3 calories a minute and can double your metabolic rate. Research claims that three passionate kisses a day (at least lasting 20 seconds each) will cause you to loose an entire extra pound! It's time to start that kissing diet! So, if I may leave you with just one message to remember this story today it is;

Kisses kept are kisses wasted.
