Kiss Comparison Checklist

Every Wednesday, YA Highway asks their readership a simple question to answer on your blog. Once you answer, you link your blog in the comments for other readers to hop on board. This is Road Trip Wednesday.

Today's topic: Compare your first kiss with your favorite character's first kiss.

Ugh. No matter how hard I try, I can't eradicate my first kiss entirely from my mind. That I want to should give you a hint of how not-stellar it was*.

If you've been lurking for a while, you've probably picked up on the fact I was a late bloomer and that High School Alicia still pictured herself as the tragically dressed, frizzy-permed, brace-face Middle School Alicia**. Why any boy would want to kiss me was baffling.

Turns out no boys did. Well, there was one. Unfortunately for me, he was also a male whore.

And this is where I compare my first kiss to Georgia Nicolson's kiss with whelk boy*** by way of checklist.

Coincidentally, he fell off the face of the planet for MONTHS after this. The next time I saw him, I was totally ready to hurl my register till at him. There's more detail than this, of course, but with my luck, this will be the day that said First Kiss boy will discover my blog and then awkward emails will ensue.

Lurkdom, tell me: how did your first kiss rate?

* It also probably explains the exact reason why I don't do kissing scenes.
** Fact: At times, I still see this instead of Present Day Alicia.
*** This may or may not be her first kiss. I can't remember since it's been a while since I've read Angus, Thongs, & Full Frontal Snogging.
