I was going to work on a bus (trotro paa) when I remembered this story. I started giggling even though I tried to keep it down. The woman that sat next to me started to look at me some way bi. Well let me tell you why I found it funny.
I was in Junior High School then; Form 3. It was suppose to be a busy day but for some reason, the whole day, the teachers were not coming to class. Lessons passed and there were still no teachers. You can imagine the ecstasy! We were super excited! The day felt so beautiful and different; students formed groups…they weren’t groups that discussed anything educational though…we talked about everything but educational.
We went on break time and it felt meaningless because it seemed we had all the time to ourselves. We later heard that the teachers will not be coming to class the whole day because of a meeting they were having which made us even more excited. Students moved from class to class….jumping around…we were totally acting like Zoo animals who’ve just escaped the zoo.
That was when the kiss happened. I was leaving my class to another class which I did so often on that day. Usually, when we went to another class, we swung across the small panel that separated the A & B classes. So I was going to the B class when I swung and my lips touched the lips of another girl who was also swinging into the class. The peck was intensely done on the lips. It was a shock for both of us. She acted weird with me after that so did I.
Even though we weren’t friends before, that peck which was like the ones you saw in a soap opera, kinda brought us closer. We talked and talked through out the day till…well, that was the kiss I was talking about. The girl in my picture is my friend, Barbara, we met in the University. Hi, Barbie if you are reading this.
So that was my weird first kiss ever!
