The Kiss

The Kiss

February 22nd, 2021

Every year the drama club put on a 3 act play.  Many people came to see it.  A new English teacher chose a play that was daring for its day.  The cute cheerleader and the star basketball player would exchange a real kiss, instead of a hug.   I wanted the part and had practiced the parts to be read.  After the try outs for the cheerleader part, I met with the English teacher.  She said I had been chosen to be a haughty aunt.  I looked very disappointed.   She said, “Any- one can do a kiss.  Your part takes real acting.” It didn’t make me feel any better.  I turned away the night of the kiss.  I did have more kisses as I got older from a real boyfriend.
