Pucker up!

International Kissing Day – Will You Take Part?

“A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous.” (The lovely and sensual film legend, Ingrid Bergman)

And who would disagree?

It seems that enough people have been sufficiently taken with the notion of puckering up and delivering or receiving anything from a peck to a smackeroo that “International Kissing Day” was conceived.

And this year it falls on 6th July.  

Now it is not my intention to debate the pros and cons of “osculation” (as Elisha Coles, in his English Dictionary of 1676, termed the act of one-to-one “lip-synching”) but I would urge anyone who is contemplating participating in this global celebration of the kiss – innocent or otherwise – to take care to ensure that the “kisser” and “kissee” are suitably prepared to avoid the perils of the rejuvenated COVID variants 😉

It would be a shame to spread the virus (or anything else) by enthusiastic smooching….!

NB look out for the next blog on “You’re Never Too Old For Exercise”. Coming soon.
