It was the summer between 6th and 7th grade. The kids in the neighborhood fixed me up with a younger boy. He and I sat on a log, opened our mouths, and pressed our lips together.

Then we pulled apart and stared straight ahead as if nothing had happened. I might have wiped my face with the back of my hand. I remember thinking, "Why does anyone look forward to doing this?" I had so much to learn. -Alisa Bowman, Project Happily Ever After
