Okay, so let me take you back to Friday, September 1st. My drama teacher had told us on one of the first days of class that she would tell us what our school's fall drama production would be on September 1st. September 1st came, and we all asked her. She said she lied and that she'd tell us on Tuesday. It has been rumored that it is going to be the Diary of Anne Frank. Upon further investigation by myself, I looked up the characters and such information, and apparently Anne Frank kisses a boy in the play, a guy named Peter, who is a teenager my age. Suddenly, I had the urge to try and get that part. Why, you ask? Well... I've never kissed a girl.
Yeah yeah, I know, kissing isn't that important, and a kiss only matters if you love the person and they love you back the same way. But unlike you, I'm from a little country called America, where everything is done fast and without feeling. So naturally you can all tell by my choice of words so far in this thread that no girl would want to listen to me for so long, let alone kiss me. I probably sound selfish and superficial right now, but my real point is that if I were to get this part, which intigues me without kissing, I would still end up kissing Anne Frank, and I've never done that before. This is the part where I start panicking over how I'm going to kiss someone IF I get this particular part, IF I make callbacks, and IF this is even the play that the drama teacher really chose.
That's when this idea came to me. Have you ever kissed another person? I don't mean like your mother or got kissed on the cheek, I mean like on the lips with another person, in complete agreement. If you have, give us the details, sistah! I mean, was it romantic? How old were you? What was your relationship with this person before the kiss? Were you outside, in front of people, in a closet at some preteen slumber party, where?
On top of that question, what advice would you give to someone kissing for the first time? Ask the person before you do anything? Stare at them romantically, move in an inch and see if they come in too? Pucker? Wait until your faces touch to reach with your lips? Close your eyes? Try to focus and go cross-eyed, or just let everything blur as you make contact?
