On School #12 Smudge of a Kiss

Disclaimer: The name in this musing is changed to protect the “infamous.”

As I walked by Linney’s desk this morning, I noticed a funny splotch on her forehead – actually two near-identical splotches. They were reddish with a tinge of orange. I thought she had been hurt – perhaps bumped her head. As I looked more closely, I stifled a giggle. Then I crowed, “Linney, you’ve been kissed.” She wrinkled her forehead and peered at me quizzically. I pointed to the blotch on her forehead and stared … so did half the class. “Did your mommy kiss you goodbye this morning?” I asked. She nodded her head trying to hide her smile. Then she raised her hand to her forehead readying herself to erase her mother’s symbol of love. “Wait!” I yelled. “Don’t!” Then I told her this story.

Last week as I was leaving for my salsa lesson, Dr. Figurski, (my husband, David) commented on my coral-eggplantish lipstick. “What?” I asked. “Did I put too much lipstick on?” He said,”Yes!” I didn’t have a tissue to blot it, so I did the next most sensible thing. I leaned over and planted a big smudge of a kiss on his cheek. He raised his hand to his cheek readying himself to erase my symbol of love. “Wait!” I yelled. “Don’t!” I told him he had to leave it on until I returned … and he did!
