It’s In His Kiss

I answer the Meet Cute questions again, this time with John Proctor doing the asking.


Meet Cute: John Proctor


1.) What was your first impression of me?

quiet nature, hard worker, with an understated splash of pizzazz

and I do a little turn on the catwalk...
and I do a little turn on the catwalk


2.) What is your idea of a truly romantic evening with me?

when you “pretend” that you don’t like my cooking but don’t want to hurt my feelings, so you distract me by randomly reenacting scenes from Shakespeare. *whispers* I forget the salt on purpose.

But soft, what light through yonder window breaks?

3.) Something that you’d like to change in me but don’t have the nerve to tell me

you’re too competitive when playing Musical Chairs at parties. calm down, honey! seriously.

this is why we never go out anymore
this is why we never go out anymore


4.) Which 3 parts of my body are your favorites, and why?

your beard, because I like to feel it brush against my face when we kiss.  your hands, because I like the way they wander when we kiss. and your lips, because I like the way you kiss. a lot.

shoop, shoop, shoop, shoop
shoop, shoop, shoop, shoop


5) 3 qualities that attracted you when we first met, or once you got to know me

you’re strong, confident, and very romantic



6.) What is our favorite movie to watch together, and our favorite song?

we don’t really have a favorite movie, but we’ve been watching a lot of Worst Cooks in America. you say I’d win that competition, hands down. we do have a favorite song though, it’s Hysteria by Def Leppard.


7.) Fruit or vegetable I resemble, and why

an onion, because you’re really good at peeling off layers

8.) Our first date, where did it take place and what did we do?

my father insisted you have dinner at his house. afterwards you and I stepped outside for some educational stargazing. we ended up in the storage shed instead, which turned out to be educational in it’s own right

me, looking for Orion's Belt
me, looking for Orion’s Belt

Father found us and was not happy! he started yelling about hoes and gardens but I wasn’t paying attention…



9.) If we hadn’t met, where would you be right now?

in the shadows. watching. always, watching.



10.) What was on your mind the last time we were intimate?

garden tools

rakes and hoses and really long handles
the long-handled kind


11.) What was the first thing we said to one another?

You: your hand looks heavy, let me hold it for you

Me: ohhh



 12.) What do you like the best about me?

when you sing in the shower

love in an elevator. livin it up when I'm goin down...

    1. I always hated that game as a kid! I would always trip over the chairs b/c I was trying to stay so close to them; the anticipation was torture! when will the music stop… 😯


  1. I never would have thought John Proctor could be funny! You proved me wrong. And I could watch that muscular torso in your broken gif all day. Every day. All day every day. And then some more.

    1. it wasn’t without effort. it was harder to find the funny in him, than it was with Francis. that “musical chairs” gif though, I laugh every time I watch it now!


  2. Fabulous! Going to have to bookmark this page so I can come back to it when I need to *cough* 😎 (Just to check those gifs are still working ok, or wrongly, or whatever…)

    No one ever offered to buy me a heifer *sniff*

    1. I once asked a significant other to buy me a heifer.
      He told me I was being udderly ridiculous, and to stop trying to milk his affection for me.
      Well, I was on the horns of a dilemma because I really wanted it, but I tried not to have a cow and tell him that his love for me was so much bull, but i think he herd me muttering and told me that he was going to hoof it.
      I consoled myself by thinking it was only calf-love anyway.

      Thus endeth the tail of a very disappointing relationship.

  3. Perfect antidote to anything that is threatening my humour balance. Thank you for this, Kelly – it really comes at a great time. And I am beginning to loosen up a bit about Proctor, too. Last year I was still too much under the spell of the piece to consider putting Proctor into a light-hearted context. But hell, it works here. I laughed out loud at your answers. Our songs… and musical chairs *rofl*. Great series – can’t wait for the next chaRActer quiz!

    1. in the current atmosphere I think Proctor was the perfect character to illustrate the point that it’s okay to laugh at things. it doesn’t mean you don’t take those things seriously at all. I respect John Proctor immensely. standing up against mob rule, fighting for integrity, sacrificing for your principals, etc. all things that are deeply ingrained in me. but he’s human too. and humans can be funny, purposely or unintentionally 🙂

  4. You made me laugh so much!!! And it came at the right moment 🙂 I have always been sad or respectful or just in awe whenever i thought about Proctor but your take is just as right and it feels fun! Maybe we can make fun of the big ol’ guy 😉 The musical chairs thing is brilliant LOL that game always stressed me out as a kid! And yes, he is a great-kisser-grabber isn’t he 🙂 Thanks again!

  5. oh and thanks for reminding me of the cow and the stew 🙂 There were funny moments in their interactions 🙂

    And yes, sorry for the repeat.. those inhaling kisses 🙂


    1. yes, the eat-your-face-off kisses! I kept getting distracted by the last kissing gif while writing the post. my mind just went blank every time I looked at it. it’s like I blacked out and lost time, I was so hypnotized by it!
