One of the favorite relaxing things Susie and I do is watch Desperate Housewives on Sunday evenings. The theme of the January 8 episode was kissing, and the different types of kisses. At the end of every episode is the Mary Alice voice over, which is the voice of her speaking to us from the great beyond. In this episode she was talking about kissing while showing scenes of different people on Whisteria Lane kissing. Here is what she said:
The act itself never varies. But each kiss carries with it a meaning all its own. It can convey a husband's eternal devotion. Or a wife's enormous regret. It can symbolize a mother's growing concern. Or a lover's growing passion. But whatever its meaning, each kiss reflects a basic human need. The need to connect to another human being.
Susie and I started our lives together with a kiss. It's a kiss we will never forget.
