That Midnight Kiss

I'm about to share something not many people know about me. It's slightly embarrassing, a little pathetic and really kinda cute all at the same time....ok well at least that's how I view it.

ANYWAY, how many of you would be surprised to know that New Years of 2009 was the very first time I had ever been kissed at Midnight...true story.... Ok, now stop, just stop it! No, I'm not lying!

Listen, listen...Yeah, I'm 30 and this should have happened many times before. But it hasn't ALRIGHT! Good lord! Let me 'splain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up. In past "New Years Midnight events" where a kiss should have taken place... I was either crying because some dude had broken my heart, or I was to busy dancing in the street with friends, or I was just plain drunk out of my mind to ease the pain....WOW! (that's really sad)

Back to my story. Phlip and I started the night off checking in to a very cozy, posh, hotel suite called "Motel 6" hahahah ok, it wasn't Motel 6 I swear! It was honestly a very hot, hotel suite. (If you'd like to see pictures I can show ya...THE HOTEL!)
After checking in, we met Phlip's sister, her husband and a few other friends at a little bar that I'll call "Orange Kush"... "Kush" for short (that isn't really the name of the bar, I just wanted to use that name instead because I'm a weirdo!)

When we arrived at the "Kush" there was already a table ready for all of us with party favors, Hawaiian lays and fun hats!
After having many, many, many, many drinks at the "Kush" , Hawaiian lays around our necks, silly hats on our heads, we decided to make our way to yet another bar to meet even more friends. I'll call this bar "Maui Wowie" ... "Wowie" for short (that isn't really the name of the bar, I just wanted to use that name instead because I'm a weirdo! HA!)

The "Wowie" was a happening place, I'll tell ya! This place had like 10 pool tables, a dance floor and a stage where people were actually singing Karaoke! I know, right! Awesome!
By the time we had a few drinks at "Maui Wowie", it was time for the Kiss at Midnight!!!
Phlip and I were standing together, as we all counted down to the last second. Then I hear the shouts coming from all over the bar "HAPPY NEW YEAR!" I turn and look up at Phlip and he gently grabs me, caresses my face, looks in to my eyes, he leans down and whispers in to my ear "happy new year baby" and then he kissed me...
Now, I'm not going to be one of THOSE people who's gonna try and actually describe the type of kiss that took place at that moment. All I'm gonna do is use a quote from the movie
"The Princess Bride" "Since the invention of the kiss there have been five kisses that were rated the most passionate, the most pure. This one left them all behind."

The moral to this story that probably only means anything to someone, is....well ME... Although I'm a grown woman, I'm honestly glad that I hadn't been kissed at Midnight on any other new years before that night. I will never forget it....ok I was super drunk and I've forgotten a lot about that night, I won't forget that moment...ever.
