This one is for the people


Mel and I had a conversation tonight...probably one that we should have had when we were 12 so that I could have set her straight(because I am never wrong). This was a conversation about kissing related to a recent discrepancy.

Our disagreement was on what constituted as "making-out". Mel said that it just had to be a kiss(did not specify open or closed mouth kissing) for 5 minutes or more**. I laughed hysterically at the thought of Mel holding out a stop watch to stop kissing someone at 4min 59sec so that she could say that she didn't make out with them.

I said that I would define it as open mouth or using tongue...rather synonymous with "french kissing"...a term that I greatly dislike.

This is what Urban Dictionary had to say:

kiss: the meeting of two pairs of lips

French kiss: An open-mouthed kiss with tongue

making out: open mouth kissing usually with tongue, and occasionally groping between 2 individuals.

**According to Mel's definition, if she held her closed mouth to her mom's closed mouth for 5 minutes, she just made out with her mom. Ha ha.

What do you have to say?

kissing doesn't count unless there is tongue, and making out is kissing for at least 5 minutes. Therefore, making out always includes tongue. Please do not twist my words.
