Gimmie Some Sugar!

Gimmie some sugar!
Anybody with ties to the south, knows that 'sugar' is a kiss (it can also refer to the amount of sweet tea you've had.)
How many granma's and granpa's greet their families with 'y'all come hea and gimmie some sugar'.
There are all kinds of kisses : the formal two cheek kiss of Italy, or the four kiss of France. In Spain it starts with a right cheek kiss, Hollywood style is pretentious air-kissing, or a nose rub like the Eskimos do. Even Faith Hill sang about 'this kiss this kiss'.
We greet friends and family alike with a big ole hug and a kiss on the cheek. The kiss and a nuzzle are reserved for the sweetest of babies. Then there is also the kissing of sweethearts.
With cookie cutters in the shape of lips and hearts, everyone can have something sweet on February 14th. Since Valentines Day is known as the day for sweethearts....
I hope y'all get some sugar!
