We attended a concert last week. Before the concert began, Best Friend walked over to the stage to take a look at the instruments and set up. I remained in my seat and people-watched
A couple arrived and sat in front of me. Both were fully masked up; she with a thickly padded cloth one that made her look like she had a snout, and he with a blue paper one from China (you know the type). They talked for a few minutes, then the unthinkable happened.
I could not believe it, for I only heard about it in legend, never witnessing it until now.
They kissed each other while the masks were still stuck on their faces!
