Have you ever been kissed by a complete stranger?  Someone you’ve never seen before and have no idea what his name is?  It’s incredible.

French boy about 3 1/2 feet tall.  He was smitten with me.  Or so his mother said as we encountered each other in the garden of the French villa we were staying at.

It was one of those perfect moments that creates a sharp, clear, and smile-producing memory.  Ah, France.   Ah, the kiss.
