XO


This is one of my favorite stories: my first kiss.

I was in kindergarten or first grade. It was toward the end of the year, and in Texas school gets out in May, but it's still bloody hot. A boy in my class, who had never said a word to me as far as I recall, told me he had a secret to tell me after school. He was poor and dirty--his face was always unwashed, and he missed button holes on his shirt sometimes. But a secret! Too good to pass up. I met him on the outskirts of the playground, knelt down, and will never forget the big, sloppy kiss he planted right in my ear. I was both repulsed and enchanted. Of course he ran away.

Relating this story to a friend, he said, "That is the way of the warrior."

Oh my friend -- never was such insight so bright. Way of the Warrior indeed. Bet even Garrosh felt touch of hesitation, maybe a touch, for his first kiss. Maybe not.

Aside from the terrors of a first kiss, and even though my kissing duties have narrowed considerably since the days of attack-ear kisses, I love the kissing in Azeroth: we all need a little sugar sometimes!

And though these kisses are not any of these...


...they are kisses of note. The Pandaren male is so in-your-face, I am wondering if he wasn't a first grade kid back in Texas in the day. And ladies, he's single! The Forsaken will both cut and kiss you all at the same time!

  2. I am a very affectionate person by nature, and the kiss animations in Azeroth have always made me smile, even the Forsaken one--so awkward but well-intentioned! Maybe I should say one of the best vanity items is the misteltoe around the winter holidays for the Blog Azeroth topic.Glad you and Cymre liked it! *sends a big hug kisses on the cheeks your way!*

  4. My first kiss was a disaster. I went in for a mouth closed kiss on the lips (Figured we'd get to the sloppy stuff once the ice was broken) but he went in for the full open mouth, which I of course didn't see because I had my eyes closed. Annnnnnd of course friends were there to see the whole thing. He was nicknamed face-mauler after that :(

    1. Sweet baby murloc that wins - I damn near spit out my wine! Hopefully both of you survived to kiss others and get the job done. I have no idea what happened to my ear-kisser, but am pretty sure I have never met a braver warrior than he.
