55 for Luck

A moment of panic overcame him
as he lost sight of her in the crowd.
Time was running short
and he dare not miss his opportunity.
He searched madly,
knowing she would be hard not to see.
She stood out.
As the clock struck twelve
theirs was a good luck kiss for the New Year.

Haha! This reminds me of just about EVERY New Year I've been married. My husband always seems to be off "seeing a man about a horse" when the clock strikes twelve. :)

(TMI? Sorry...!)

Happy New Year, MM. All the best for 2011.

Now that's a kiss worth waiting for - especially in time square.

Happy New Year MM

We're so old kissing sometimes hurts, but hey for New Years we make an exception. Nice 55, my friend, and thanks for all your words of wisdom at my place this year. May we all keep each other laughing in 2011.

I rarely have trouble finding my wife for that kiss when the clock strikes midnight - we're usually both in bed already! And half the time already asleep (Although sometimes the noise - gunfire, etc - wakes us up)

I'm much more into Fireworks than Kissing....Shows MY age eh?
MM...You are a very loyal friend and I do appreciate it!
Have a Kick Ass 2011

Happy New Year, Monkey Man!

Janna said...

I have no one to kiss, except my cats!
And it's kinda gross, having to spit out all that fur afterward.

Wait... was that TMI?

I'm still waiting for my first new year's kiss. I've never had one in over 40 decades. It sounds so magical.

I received one of my most memorable kisses on New Year's Eve from a complete stranger. The lights went out and some grabbed me and kissed me passionately, but was gone before the lights came back on. I will always wonder who ....

Personally i was always drawn to shorter women. It makes the hunt harder and the kiss last longer.

It is amazing to me how you make me feel like I'm reading a short story. I anticipate the ending much like I would anticipate the ending of the book I'm reading, but you manage to make it happen in a only a few lines!

Wind said...
