Here’s the challenge:
Share a memory you have that links a person and a song in your mind, preferably:
- way in the past
- having to do with someone you LIKED, like that
Here’s a memory I have of the first boy I ever kissed, at age 13, in the summer of 1991. We were an official couple for three days at Camp. I did like him, but mostly I was flattered that he had asked me out (after using a bona fide cheesy pickup line on me). He was a smoothie, and cute, but considerably shorter than I was, so unfortunately when we danced together I could smell his Raiders cap, which was pretty ripe. The song I most remember dancing to with him is “Listen to Your Heart” by Roxette, a song I loved, like, majorly.
(I did listen to my heart, and broke up with him shortly thereafter. You know how it is, I was feeling tied-down… and I guess a little disappointed that French-kissing wasn’t more magical. Guess it helps to have a genuine connection with the person you’re kissing.)
