i used to think that saying “i love you” was this sacred thing and that saying it too much to too many people would make it lose meaning but now i think the exact opposite. i love every person i meet and every person i see, they’re all just different kinds of love and they manifest in different ways.
“Kiss her. Slowly, take your time, there’s no place you’d rather be. Kiss her but not like you’re waiting for something else, like your hands beneath her shirt or her skirt or tangled up in her bra straps. Nothing like that. Kiss her like you’ve forgotten any other mouth that your mouth has ever touched. Kiss her with a curious childish delight. Laugh into her mouth, inhale her sighs. Kiss her until she moans. Kiss her with her face in your hands. Or your hands in her hair. Or pulling her closer at the waist. Kiss her like you want to take her dancing. Like you want to spin her into an open arena and watch her look at you like you’re the brightest thing she’s ever seen. Kiss her like she’s the brightest thing you’ve ever seen. Take your time. Kiss her like the first and only piece of chocolate you’re ever going to taste. Kiss her until she forgets how to count. Kiss her stupid. Kiss her silent. Come away, ask her what 2+2 is and listen to her say your name in answer.”—Azra.T “this is how you keep her” (via 5000letters)
Me:Well you have questions and I want to answer them
Ten:I learned all about boobies in school!
Me:I am not sure what you learned, and I want to make sure it is accurate and you understand it correctly
Ten:I learned that when you have boobies men touch them!
Me:Well, sometimes you might want to have a man touch them,
Ten:(Horrified) What! WHY! GROSS
Ten:(continuing) In school they said men may touch them without permission
Me:If that happens, then you say (to husband) WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING DO NOT TOUCH MY BODY WITHOUT PERMISSION
Ten:MOM you said the f word!
Me:You say that - and you look at him in the face so he knows you are serious.
Me:Do you really give a shit about if some man who would touch your body without permission thinks you are nice? Who fucking cares if that guy thinks you are a bitch. He touched your body without permission.
