Kiss De Girl

An interesting little connection occurred to me yesterday while talking to a friend. Somehow, we started discussing musicals and, after a shortened rendition of "Elephant Love Medley", we narrowed it down to Disney musicals. For whatever reason, I decided to share the following story.

It was Valentine's Day, my last semester of college. This young man and I had been seeing a lot of each other for the 2.5 weeks prior, but had to yet to do more than cuddle on the couch and we certainly hadn't discussed the feelings developing between us. He'd surprised me by showing up at work just as we were closing and we'd gone back to his place. We were snuggled on the couch in the living room, which was in the middle of the apartment, his bedroom and his roommate's bedroom were on either side.

While we were deciding that we were definitely dating and were looking forward to seeing where this was going, his roommate suddenly dashed across the living room into my man's bedroom. Within moments, we heard "Kiss The Girl" from The Little Mermaid blasting from the computer speakers. We laughed, but it took the roommate running back and forth to press play three or four times and occasionally yelling "Have you done it yet!?" for us to finally kiss. It was very sweet.

Then, I added this gem:

There was also the time that this guy I was dating in high school and I were playing pool and listening to the soundtrack from Tarzan. "You'll Be in My Heart" had begun shortly before I won the round. The guy then started the song over before coming back to kiss me for the first time. (It was also a rather awkward first kiss, but that's not the point.)

Suddenly, I realized something I'd never realized before. Two of my first kisses were to Disney songs, and while I'm no longer even in contact with either of these guys, the memories still make me smile.
