i love you kid, but not THAT much

Today I went to the Precario. I told a little girl that I still had the picture she made for me two weeks ago in my purse so that I could carry it with me and remember to pray for her. She liked this so much that she threw her skinny little arms around my neck and kissed me. Like full on the mouth. Which is really so so so sweet. Unfortunately…I wasn’t really expecting it, wasn’t ready for it, and so my mouth was kinda…open….so it’s more like she kissed my teeth. Actually, it’s more like she wiped her runny nose on my teeth. Which is really so so so gross.

So, instead of feeling all warm and feel-good-fuzzy inside, I’m just all creeped out. Like my mouth has become a ground zero festering with some new strain of I don’t know what but I’m sure it’s terrible…and incurable…*shudder*…

    Ditto girl! Had a little boy who had a great time at english class, and got to keep some snacks I brought for him – he angled in for that full on kiss on the lips – luckily I saw it coming, in the nick of time, and managed to turn my head ever so slightly so my cheek got the brunt of it! Whew!
