OK, if you know me, you’re probably familiar with my acronym habit (AH).
You say a phrase, but I see/hear it in an acronym.
Maybe i’m savant.
I know I’m not.
For someone who thinks in terms of acronyms, you’d assume that initials would be pretty 2nd nature for me.
Here’s just how ridiculous I am….
So, for YEARS, i’ve heard the jingle from Kay jeweler, ‘Every kiss begins with Kay’.
Oh, that’s sweet. he give her jewelry. She melts. She kisses him. He thanks ‘Kay’.
Beyond that, never gave it a 2nd thought.
Tonight, for the first time ever, I realized that it was a double meaning: a physical kiss begins with the letter ‘K’ as well as jewelry from Kay being the catalyst for a thankful/romantic kiss.
I discovered all this whilst on J&E’s couch (all of us having sung the phrase about 2,000 times tonight).
I guess it was kind of like an Oprah ‘Ah-Ha’ moment (but not at all).
E&J were shocked that I had never seen it in the 2nd meaning.
That’s me, full of surprises.
Happy Valentine’s Day.
May all your kisses begin with ‘K’ or ‘Kay’.
