Mother Nature uses the tongue

The other day, my 10 year old daughter was complaining about her freckles to my wife, and my wife told her they were Mother Nature’s kisses. My daughter’s response:

“Mother Nature uses the tongue.”

My ears perked up and I thought, “How true that is!” French kissing can be wonderfully intimate under the right circumstances; it can also be a violation under different circumstances. Nature is like that: sometimes like a lover, as close to us as our own skin, and sometimes too close for comfort.
