Sloppy Kisses

Whose idea was it to start the tradition of kissing as the clock strikes midnight on New Year's Eve? I'll bet it was the same sick jerk who decided that standing under the mistletoe at Christmas was great for punishing people with nasty, lipstick-laden smooches from your Aunt Edna.

But seriously, what kind of kisses could you possibly look forward to? New Year's kisses are a bad idea for many reasons, the biggest of them being that there's about a 90% chance that at least one of you is drunk. Then you factor in that you will probably be heckled and jeered by the room full of single people you have inevitably decided to spend the occasion with. And in my case, you put all of that together, add in some loving pets, and get this atrocity:

Yeah, I'm not sure either. But before you panic and think that I mistook my 3.5 lb pup for my 200+ lb cop, sleep easily knowing that he got his New Year's kiss too.

And if you were a lucky single guy at said party *ahem*, you got a kiss from all the lovely ladies in attendance...

Note to Self: I hope all y'all's New Year wishes come true. May your home be filled with love, warmth, hope, and cheap beer... I mean, um, prosperity... in 2009.

Happy New Year to you as well. I could barely stay up...Hubby and I fell asleep in front of tv, waking up at exactly 11:58. We watched the ball drop, kissed, and went to bed. I'm not sure where the tradition came from... When I used to follow Days of our Lives back in college, I watched an episode where someone said that the person you kiss at midnight is the one you will remain with for life...So as not to break the soap opera legend...I keep on kissin'!

MJ, why are you kissing that dust mop?

Soooo, did the cop get his kiss before or AFTER you smooched the dog????

LOL. I was wondering the same thing as Kweenmama! Life is too short for cheap beer though. I don't drink it much but when I do, it's got to be the good stuff. Plus, there's also the fact that I take so long to drink one that it has to taste good at room temperature. LOL. Happy 2009 to you! I think you started it off right but beginning it with kisses! :)
