There are two kissing days, the first is World Kissing Day invented in the United States and International Kissing Day, found in the UK (We think). So for today, pretend to be British and get all the kisses you can!
The good thing about kissing is that it demonstrates our emotions to each other in a way no other activity can. (Well, almost no other activity.) A kiss on the hand shows respect, on the cheek shows brotherly or sisterly love, on the lips means it’s either love or the mafia is after you.
The bad thing about a kiss it that normally 80 million microbes of bacteria are exchanged. Doesn’t matter if you are a person or a squirrel! Actually the squirrel might be cleaner! But the heck with being germ free… there is nothing like a kiss.
Birds do it, bees do it, even bears in the wild do it! Of course they are probably licking the dead salmon off it’s mates lips. The world record for the longest kiss in (Recorded) history belongs to Laksana & Ekkachai Tiranarathold in Thailand, 58 hours, 35 minutes and 58 seconds. Couldn’t hold out for those 2 extra seconds! Actually, they kissed through their introduction to the contest… it took that long to say their names!
Anyway, find someone to kiss today and celebrate with the rest of the International Community. Whether it’s on the hand, the cheek or lips, you’ll spread some joy… and some germs!
