Alaska and I are taking the week off of Trending Topics (A much needed vacation from that crap) so i figured it I’d do a poll. I pretty much only do these things when the outside worlds opinion on something I’ve always assumed one way , in reality, may be totally different from how I see it. Past topics have included how people wipe their ass, how you jerk off, what type of chocolate is best and what kind of underwear you wear. They were all very informative and fun so I’d recommend you looking into those via this blog’s search engine. Trust, it’ll teach you things (I’m still getting over the insane amount of “Dry guys” out there).
Anyway, the topic this time is the affection levels between a parent and their child. To be exact, how they greet/say goodbye to their kids.
When I was a kid, I was often at a particular friends house when his parents got home from work. They greeted me with a waved “hello!”and proceeded to both kiss him (and his brother) on his mouth. The mom and the dad. Obviously, there was no tongue or anything but what I saw there blew my mind. Perhaps I didn’t grow up in the most affectionate household but a mouth on mouth kiss between kids and parents was just not something I knew existed. Since then, I’ve seen this various times.Not super commonly, but enough to notice it. It never ceases to skeeve me out…and it’s not like it bothers me cause i assume these kids are fucking their parents or anything , it just seems like a subtle line of affection that’s being crossed. That thin line that separates how family, friends and lovers greet each other. It’s one thing to kiss your baby on the lips or even your little kid…but once that child becomes an adult, it always struck me as totally fucking weird. Kinda like when kids call their parents by their first names (instead of some version of “Mom” and “dad”) but with an added layer of uncomfortableness.
So, lemme ask you…am I over reacting? Here’s a poll. it’s anonymous (even to me). I gave you various options. please pick the one that best describes how you say hi/bye to your parents/guardians. Seriously, no reason to lie here…it’s for sociological purposes. Trust me.
