Kiss the Girl

You said, it was all too soon
That my heart was fresh, brand new
I needed to get steady on my feet
Navigate my uncharted waters

And I said, life is too short
Not to gaze into those eyes
Or to hold that soft hand
Feel your breath on my cheek
Place my hand against your chest,
Feel your heartbeat
To feel your hand run across my back,
To feel the heat
Kiss the girl I want to kiss
Under a moon lit night

You said, it was unfamiliar course
Landing on this a rocky shore
That I needed firm ground to hold me true
I'm not the first, you have seen it all before
And I said, the journey may be precarious but
Are willing to me hold me steady?

You said, let me help you find the way
Keep me steady on my feet
To navigate the uncharted waters
You would be there to hold me true

And I said,
Let me kiss the girl I want to kiss
Under a moon lit night

Drivers

So, the other day I posted on Facebook how drivers don't use their turn signals, which is annoying. I ranted about their lack of driving skills. So, today I made a run to the grocery store to pick up a few things. What struck me was how bad the drivers of shopping carts are. I avoided crash after crash of bad drivers on my way to the dairy case.  One older man in a motorized cart had blocked the milk case. So, I patiently waited, then this short old lady just cut in front of me to get her carton of not fat creamer. I said not one word but waited. Finally, I get to the milk case and the motorized driver comes whipping around me, nearly hit me and bumps my cart then glares at me as if it were my fault. He got the other end of the milk case and promptly hops out of his motorized cart and walks to the case for chocolate milk. I shook my head.

I finished picking my items and kept thinking if they drive this bad in the grocery store, I don't want to see them behind the wheel of a vehicle!! And I bet they don't use their turn signals!!
