You gotta love boys

The New Year's Eve celebration we attended happened to be themed "Love 2009," complete with a strong emphasis on kissing: movie clips of classic kissing scenes on the big screens, a record setting attempt for the number of people kissing at midnight, even very Italian kissing instructions and practice throughout the evening running up to midnight.

All of this was a bit much for the 10-year-old boy with us.  But he had a plan.

Sam: "I hope I can do it."
Us: "Do what?"
Sam:  "I'm going to burp for two minutes straight.  When everyone's kissing."

Well now. It's good to have a goal.
