Kisses From Another

Recently, there was an event at church that had small bowls of Hershey chocolate candy on each table. Who doesn't like Hershey Kisses, Rolos & Reeses Peanut Butter Cups? Reeses are my favorite, but I'll eat the others.

Afterward, while we were cleaning up, I handed the remains of a bowl to one of the ladies in our church. There were two Rolos & eight kisses left. She said I could have the remaining candy and dumped them in my shirt pocket.

I looked at her and said "Just wait until my wife finds out that you gave me a bunch of kisses." Her eyes got real big and she let out an audible gasp. She is quite prone to "gotchas" and I definitely got her there. I told my wife the story while giving her the two Rolos (one of her favorites). "I can't believe she didn't see that set-up coming.", she said.

A little later, after supper at a Mexican restaurant, I reached into my shirt pocket & offered one of the candies back to the lady who gave them to me. "Oh no, you're not going to get me this time.", she exclaimed. "No," I replied "Since they have been in my pocket & are starting to get melty, I was going to give you a sloppy kiss."

I thought the other lady sitting with us was going to roll on the floor. Later that night my wife told me "There are times when your humor irritates me, and drives me crazy, but that was really funny."

I still chuckle when I think of the look of shock on this sister's face. She really should know better, she's known us for several years.
