Have you ever reconnected with your first kiss? I did! Since I do the high school reunions I'm in touch with most everyone, which is very odd if you know me. I've been in touch with Carry for many years via Facebook and email but in the nearly 40 years since high school have only seen him once, at the 15 year reunion, with his lovely wife. Since we are friends out of high school I invited him and his wife to come to dinner sometime and guess what, on this past Monday night he came to dinner with The Hubby and I. His wife was with her family and Carry decided to come to town to visit his mother, so he called. We grilled a wonderful steak and sat on our new patio, had dinner and some wonderful conversation. I knew The Hubby and he would get along because they both love history stuff and I was right. It's kind of weird but in prospective I was only 13 years old when I got that first kiss and we really didn't know each other. We are forging a new friendship, 40 years later. What is weird is that I had that wide-eyed young love giddy still burning for that first kiss guy for many, many years but since I have gotten to know him as a grown-up and met him again, well, it's gone. I used to get that little flutter when he emailed pictures of his family and grandchildren or the thought of seeing him again but the giddy and flutter is GONE! He's just a guy from my childhood and all of that stuff is burned out. I've got another kind of giddy and flutter that takes its place and he's called The Hubby! Sometimes visiting the past is a bit healing, don't you think. It's puts all of that kind of stuff in perspective for me. I have much better memories of meeting The Hubby and our first kiss, our first touch...lots of first. I choose to remember the first kiss from the guy that changed my life forever, The Hubby, now that's a first kiss!
