A real kiss with a real girl. Not Mom, Grandma, or one of those Aunts I hardly know.
I wanted to get it right. You only get one first kiss. I mean, a guy could become a hero, or mess up and never live it down.
We were walking home together on Tuesday. My hands started sweating. Heck, everything was sweating. I wanted to run but stopped walking instead.
She turned. I lunged, making a smacking sound, almost missing her lips. She started to laugh, but smiled. We started walking again, silent.
Not a bad start for a third grader.
