Public Display of Affection
A Fresh Look at P.D.A
You know what makes my day, what makes this high school life truly worth living? When I walk to class and see two people licking each other’s faces like dessert plates, and shoving their tongues down each other’s mouth. It just fills me with joy. It doesn’t fill me with anything else. But joy, yeah. Thank you, thank you so much for sharing!
I hate it when people try to hide their kissing and spit-swapping from others. Why would you do that? I guess you know nobody else wants to see it, right? But then, if we don’t want to see people sticking their tongues down each other’s throats, is there something wrong with us?
When I walk out of my jazz band class in the morning and head to my first-period class, I usually see four people who make my day almost every morning. Now, I completely understand it is entirely too hard to go eight hours without sucking face. People have to do what they have to do. And it’s so wonderful that their joys are such a regular part of my life, and I get to see this spectacle so early in the morning. It doesn't stop there, though. Thank the Lord, I get to see this all day.
This one day after fourth period, I was walking to my dad’s classroom and there was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen: a guy and a girl, walking down the hall lip-locked, knocking people out of the way! What made it so awesome was that it wasn’t just a visual treat. You could actually hear the spit swishing around. It was practically a 4-D experience.
Sure, sure, I understand: it would be totally inadequate to live out your love affair merely by hugging or holding hands in public. Instead of walking down the hallway hand-in-hand, why not walk down the hallway lip-and-lip, or better yet, tongue-and-tongue?
There could be reasons on why you don’t want to suck one anothers faces. For one thing, if you’re a candidate for mono or herpes -- if you’re going to be an effective Rose High disease vector -- you probably don’t want the whole school knowing you drink other people’s saliva. And I won’t even mention common decency and a respect for the opinions of others. This is high school, after all.
