So many of these are so true. My favorite was the last one with the one about a post not far behind. Very clever. :)

I love this Gattina! I wish that kids really understood love. Perhaps they do and their parents are the confused ones. Who knows. The young girl I mentor is so in love and her parents do all they can to stop her. I think we all must have our "puppy love" so we can know how to love others in our lives.

Fun list. I'd only disagree with the sweaty hands one. When my parents were dating, my mother took my father's hand as they watched a movie. After a few minutes, he retrieved it. "Too sweaty" was his explanation. The were married for almost 65 years. Although my father was in good health when my mother passed, he declined very quickly and died just a few months after her. If there's an afterlife, I'm guessing that he still doesn't hold hands during the movies. :-)
