Kiss! Kiss! Yuck! Yuck!
When I was growing up my mum used to wear bright red lipstick. When she kissed me, she always left a big red smelly spot on my cheek. YUCK! But that wasn’t the worst bit!! Because then she’d get out her hanky and suck the end until it was dripping with smelly SPIT, and then she’d WIPE HER KISS OFF!!! YUCK! So I don’t blame Andy for running from Auntie Elsie AT ALL. Do you run away from anyone’s hugs and kisses?
