Joelle’s tales:  First Thursday of the month #TMAT120 #writing #prompt for January



Today’s prompt is:  Your first kiss.

Her name was Carmel. I was in my last year of high school, naive beyond words, terrified of girls but fascinated by the smartest girl in the class and who seemed to like me.

We were in a mate’s car dropping her home.

As we approached her place I leant over in absolute trepidation and kissed her on the lips. I think after I asked something intelligent like ‘is that alright?’

She smiled at me as if to say: ‘I’m sure you’ll improve on that.’

After that everything is a blur. I think it was the anxiety induced by such an act. It wasn’t perfect but then could a first kiss be perfect?

    MS Word says it’s a beautiful 113 word moment.

    One may forget many things in a lifetime, but never the name of the person who first you kiss.

    Hmm…I can’t remember my first kiss, so it must have been very memorable 🙂 I do remember (sort of) my last one though – and we’re talking boy/girl thing and not mother/child or grandma/grandchild thing – would have been in…1976. But oh boy, I sure remember my first crush. His name was Clive William Pickering. We were both 14 and best mates. My dad called him “the red-backed spider” because he always wore a red jumper that his grandma knitted for him.

      Oh I love it Lyn….I remember mine simply because it was so traumatic at the time…..I’d like to think I got better with practice…maybe the prompt should have asked when we had our last kiss….2012…
