First Kiss

My first kiss was with Mikey Rousselle. My sister and her friend arranged for us to end up on the sidewalk at the same time alone during a rousing game of flashlight tag one night. We stopped in front of each other and he asked, "So, you have never kissed anyone?" I shook my head. He leaned in and kissed me and then we ran off in different directions to hide before we were caught.

I was 11 and he was 10.

I remember thinking it was the sweetest kiss I had ever received and that he was the cutest boy I had ever met.

Before the game of tag was over everyone knew we had kissed and I was so embarrassed. But, not too embarrassed to let him kiss me again the next night.

Sigh. Young love.

I am not sure how it started. I guess maybe it was a genuine illness at first. Then the teenager babysat a little late on a Saturday night. ...
