This Kiss


You can kiss me in the moonlight
On the rooftop under the sky
You can kiss me with the windows open
While the rain comes pouring inside
-Faith Hill

Ah, our first kiss. Well, back at Baylor, after Adam and I had been dating a while, he took me on a big surprise date. He had my roommates pack a bag for the day and we drove to Fort Worth to go to the rodeo/stockyards and then we went out to eat at P.F. Chang's. It was an amazing day.

That night, we were famished when we arrived at the restaurant and so we ordered appetizers and then each had an entree. We were stuffed but I, of course, had a sweet tooth and so we ordered The Great Wall of Chocolate.

Let me stop here and say that, if you've never seen the Great Wall of Chocolate at P.F. Chang's, it is a fitting name. It is gigantic. A slab of rich chocolate cake that could feed a party of 6. We each had about two bites and we were done. But, alas- an idea occurred in my head.

You see, I had requested that Adam wait to kiss me for a couple of months now. He was patient. But, I issued a challenge. I told him that if he would finish the Great Wall of Chocolate, then we could have our first kiss. Adam's mouth dropped open. After a few, "Seriously?" 's and confirmations and he accepted.

He began methodically working away at the massive slab of cake. Bite after bite after bite. The tables next to us caught wind of the challenge and everyone was cheering him on towards victory. He began perspiring and turning pale. But, onward he journeyed. Finally, a few bites remained and Adam looked like he might pass out but he was determined. When he finally finished, the tables next to us cheered and we literally leaned over the table and had our first kiss in the middle of P.F. Chang's.

And that is one of the many, many reasons that I married Adam Jennings. He has always made me feel like my kisses, my time, my thoughts are precious to him. He's a great man.
