In honour of my first kiss

So, I was late to this kissing game. It was at a grade 9 dance, Bobby (yes, that really was his name!) and I slipped outside of the gymnasium and went for a little walk. He was a gorgeous boy, with dark hair that fell into his eyes. I’d been admiring him in Science class … sitting there all tall and handsome in his football jacket. And now, here I was, holding his hand in the dark.

We leaned against a wall where we couldn’t be seen and **poof** my first kiss. Blaring in the background was the music from the dancefloor — “If you leave” by OMD. To this day, that song immediately transports me back to that lovely moment in time.

Ah, sweet memories. Happy valentine’s day to each and every one of you.


  1. Ooooh, Julie! You just made my heart move. I met the most wonderful person at an OMD concert when I was 15. I hearted him so much. Sadly it couldn’t work out for very sensible reasons, but I will never forget him and that song too. *sigh*. Happy Valentine’s Day to you!! <3 (I don't often use that hearty symbol but today it seems appropriate!)

  2. Glad we could enjoy a mutual *sigh* today! :)

  3. **sigh** That is a lovely story. :) Happy Valentine’s Day.

  4. Ah, I love this! I too was in Grade 9 for my first kiss, also at a school dance. Spandeau Ballet’s True brings me right back to that gym, circa 1983. Too funny!

  5. Sigh. I hear you with the memories and the music. Tears for Fears “Shout” was the song that brings back those memories for me. :)
