This third picture reminds me of a time in college when I was at a party at a friends parents house. They had a rather large home and as the evening progressed I stepped out to have a smoke on what I thought was a rather secluded patio. No sooner had I lit my cigarette than a guy I’d had a secret crush on stepped from behind the curtain of the sliding glass door. When he came out on the patio he closed the door behind him. I was standing across the patio, leaning up against a wood rail. We were both pretty drunk but when he asked me if he could bum a 'fag', I sobered up a bit. I said ‘sure’ and proceeded to pull the pack of cigarettes from my pants pocket. As I was doing this, he walked right up to me standing almost in my face. I shrugged this off as just him being drunk but he was definitely in my 'too close zone.' When I handed him the cigarette he put it in his mouth and mumbled, 'got a light?' Without saying a word, I reached up and took the cigarette from my mouth and held it up in front of his as if to say, 'here, use my cigarette.' Rather than take it from my hand, he just leaned into the cig and lit up. He took a big drag then reached up and took the cigarette from his mouth, exhaled and then leaned in and kissed me on the mouth. It startled me and I kind of pulled back a bit but then just went for it! The kiss turned passionate and seemed to go on for minutes but in reality it was probably only about 15 seconds. When he pulled away he turned and leaned up against the rail next to me and we just stood there smoking. After several minutes of silence, I simply said, ‘wow.’ He looked at me, grinned and winked, then flicked his cig butt into the yard and walked back into the house. We never spoke of it again. We still live in the same town. I see him from time-to-time. He’s married now with 3 kids and seems very happy. But I have wondered on different occasions when I’m at a party, a little tipsy and I step out for a smoke, what would I do if he walked through the door and asked me to bum a ‘fag.’

Hey, there, Anonymous: I really enjoyed your story. I'll bet many of us have had somewhat similar experiences but, perhaps, not so memorable!
