It reminds me of a first kiss. At least, that's when a first kiss was a first kiss (and the US dollar was backed by the gold standard).
Ideally, you didn't ask for your first kiss. It just came naturally, arising from the circumstances you found yourself in. In other words, better at a beach party bonfire filled with excitement when your team won the big game, than during a middle school spin-the-bottle moment in the basement (AKA you have to kiss me because the bottle is pointed at you and I spun it).
