Hi everyone,

Uncle Charlie desperately wanted a kiss one night and his desire was fulfilled.

His girlfriend's mother lit a kerosene oil lamp and told his girlfriend to take it to the sitting room. They had to cross a hall to get there. Just as they got in the hall, Uncle Charlie jumped up, blew out the flame, kissed his girl, and helped her yell, "The lamp went out!" And it was the only way he could get a kiss he so much desired from his girlfriend, and he still revels in that moment, and, when they see each other, they laugh about it. I have a man friend who was married to my multi-millionaire woman friend, and he told me, without her knowing it, that the girl he truly loved was the woman who would not let him see above her knees. It’s not a bad idea to be slow to kiss and to keep one’s dress, today, just above the needs and not up to the waistline, especially when courting.

When romance is rarely or not done, it is more lasting than something practiced frequently. Or, when something is desired from a girl and withheld, the memory is everlasting. Millennials, that is the way it is, so put down your narcissism and laziness and think better things, like withholding romance, no matter how hot the burner, and get a job.

That is the story of American men, and it is your choice to make life what you want it to be.
