53 Things To Do Before A First Kiss
Unfortunately, points 46-53 were all religious, and I know that I want to avoid anything controversial as far as this blog entry is concerned. The point is not to make a strong statement or to start a confrontation, but hopefully to just throw some ideas out there with a positive attitude that some people might find interesting. So the last few items on the list were removed, save for #50.
