Toothpaste kisses

There’s something magical about kisses and the way that they taste and feel, and how they all feel so different – the first kiss you ever have, the first kiss from a new partner, a kiss on the forehead, a middle of the night kiss, a drunk-with-love kiss, a drunk-from-the-bar kiss, a good morning kiss, a kiss that brings you closer, and a kiss you’re pretty sure will be your last with a partner. There are also, of course, stolen kisses, imagined kisses, butterfly kisses, try-to-make-you-feel-better kisses, and then there are toothpaste kisses.

Toothpaste kisses? Yes. Check out one of my new adored songs by the Maccabees and the video for it here.
