More than a year ago Cylin Busby’s most excellent anthology First Kiss (Then Tell): A Collection of True Lip-Locked Moments came out. And it was very good. Still is! I am now posting my story from that antho., “Pashin’ or the Worst Kiss Ever,” in its entirety to give you a taste of First Kiss and encourage you to buy it or borrow it from the library and experience all that goodness.
I’m extremely proud of this story. Not so much for its literary prowess but because of the responses it has evoked from its readers, which include nausea and gagging:
I didn’t love every story in this collection; some were just, “eh,” and some were good but not really my thing (I have a weak stomach, so some of them made me rather nauseous!).1
Disgusting yet hilarious.
Hands down favorite for sheer grossness (it was so gross it was funny!) was Justine Larbalestier’s “Pashin’”, a tale of her friend’s first kiss.
Justine Larbalestier’s “Pashin’ or The Worst Kiss Ever” was my favorite, hands down. I’ve read it three times (once aloud to Josh), and it made me gag every single time. No, that’s not a typo. I said gag, and I meant it. Literally.
The most disgusting story ever.
And now the story is available for you to read right here on this site. Read it if you dare! I take no responsibility for any nausea, gagging, or other side effects. You can’t say you weren’t warned.
