Holding hands. Remember that? What 2 kids would do to show affection for one another. At one point as a young girl, that was all I would do with boys to show them I liked them. Shortly after, I discovered mind games and BJ's. Somewhere along the way hand holding got lost. There was kissing and there was sex, but holding hands was a long lost missing friend. Something happened to the art of holding hands. I never really realized how long it has been since someone held my hand, until he held my had. Jeepers, I missed it. It's a form of connecting that can be just as intimate and sexy as a kiss or, as erotic as sex. And yet, it's set apart by innocence, and sweetness.
My friend (Kate) who I've now been talking to on a daily basis about solving the great mystery of life (Men). When I brought up this topic, she also said that holding hands makes us feel protected. I couldn't agree more with that. There is nothing like a Mans Manly hand holding yours, leading you and protecting you. Kate and I were also talking about how we both agree that Men are stupid and Women are crazy. We make them stupid and they us make us crazy.
I guess stupid and crazy go hand in hand.
