And so it begins

On New Year's Eve my husband and I watched an old black-and-white movie about younger, more energetic people celebrating the New Year.  We know the ending quite well and the champagne had made us sleepy, so we dozed together in the rocker-recliner while I periodically glanced at the time.

At midnight I roused myself enough to turn my husband's mouth toward my lips and plant a big one on.  His face instantly screwed up into an expression of irritation and panic, Don't cut off my oxygen!

"How did you like my kiss?" I asked later when crawling into bed beside him.

He replied, "What kiss?"

"The one I gave you at midnight.  You don't remember it?"


I burst out laughing.  And so it goes!  Hello, 2019.
