Is that why it is twice on each cheek in the Vendee, they are trying to make up for lost time in 1910. Embarassed

I get a bit fed up of all this kissing m'larky in France. Okay I live here and like the place and try to behave as locals do.
BUT blooming kissing the MIL 8 times a day is 'un peu trop'.

When she stays here I am expected to kiss twice on each cheek (facial of course... Embarassed ) morning and night.

Once I stayed in Corsica and we had a lot of people staying at her house, 14 of her friends plus daily visitors..... I reckon I had to 'perform' about 1000 kisses in 1 week.

Very unproductive and full of garlic flavoured germs.

I've learnt to sport a few days stubbly growth when she arrives here now.

On this day ..... well, a week or so ago ...... kissing was banned at Warrington Bank Quay as well. Doesn't quite have the same ring about it, does it?
