The kids were at Grandma's so we had the weekend alone for once. We planned to go out for dinner and a movie and were rushing around trying to get ready. It had been a crazy week, so things were not where they should be. Connie and I kept running up and down the stairs to get this or take that where it needed to be.
It finally happened-Connie was heading down the stairs as I was rushing up. We didn't see each other and collided in the middle. I managed to cradle her head and cushion her fall, but my rough and scratchy cheek grazed hers. Our heads turned and our lips met.
We never did have dinner that night...
