I had a sick kid yesterday so I took advantage of the one hour that she was not running a fever to drop off dry cleaning, pick up dry cleaning, get gas, pay a bill, return something and drop off some library books. I have many times expounded on the virtues of the public library as one of the most wonderful places in this town. I feel very strongly that part of my kids love for books centers around the amount of time we spent at the library from the time they were tiny. We take out stacks of books and movies and I can't wait to see what types of books we will get next. Right now we are reading Geronimo Stilton, all types of Manga, Garfield and let's never forget the immortal Harry Potter.
Yesterday as I was leaving the library I happened to notice a car parked in the library parking lot with both windows down. And sitting in the car was a man in the passenger seat and a woman in the drivers seat. The reason they caught my eye was because the man was practically sitting on top of the woman. And then I looked closer to realize that the man was not only sitting on top of the woman, he was devouring her with the most amorous kiss I have seen since The English Patient. There is a kissing scene between Ralph Fiennes and Kristen Scott-Thomas that is so amorous that it makes me melt to watch it, at a certain point I am convinced that one of them will swallow the other and then poof! They will disappear. Anyway - this couple was really going at it. As a matter of fact it made me slow down the car really slow and creep by as I creepily stared at this couple making out like a couple of teenagers in this gold Toyota Camry.
Did I mention that the couple looked like they could be around my age? Now, it has been a long time since I made out in the car and even longer since I watched the English Patient, but I didn't gross out - instead I was intrigued. Why were these two making out at the library? Were they lovers? Were they married? Were they having an affair? Were they living out of their car? Whatever the reason - I think we need to bring really awesome kissing back - all over the place and all the time.
Happy Halloween everyone!
