Get a Room!

Yesterday, while in the Children's section of Barnes & Noble bookstore, I observed 2 fully grown adults in their 30's. A little boy was nearby purusing the books while they sat pressed together in front of the wooden train table, arms around each other, giggling, groping, whispering... tonguing each other!

Yes, I saw tongues!

I am not a prude. I am pretty open minded (at least in my mind). I actually think it is nice to see adults in love, enamored even. But impassioned, between the Barbie and Curious George (Barbie and Curious George! The names seemed appropriate too!) paraphernalia?! A little much, don't you think?! Hearing them kiss? More than a bit gross! The only sucking sounds I should be hearing are little toddlers' thumbs in their own mouths!

I didn't needed to see this, much less have my son watch! And people gripe about mothers' who breastfeed in public? Please! I don't care if I see a whole boob with an infant attached. I can explain the purpose of that. But, the adults sucking face?!

And I assumed the little boy there was the woman's child since the man seemed to have less interest in the boy (even less than she did!). So it made me wonder, who was cheating on whom? I mean, come on! Why else would two adults make out in the kiddie section of Barnes & Noble? No married couple (married to each other!) would do that! At least none that I could think of.

What were Barbie and Curious George doing?! What were these two thinking?! Obviously not much thinking going on.

Get a Room!

Or at least go into the adult section!

I agree with you Misha.....get a damn room. I am no prude either but there is a time and a place for everything and the Book store is no place for PDA. Its like saying "Look at me, look at me"
I must be cool cause I can suck face in public. I agree that this
liason was between two cheaters. But who are they really cheating??
The poor child that has that for an example...Trashy Barbie Mom.
Some people should just not have

Anonymous... What's a PDA?

PDA: Public Display of Affection

I remember one comedian saying, "If you see two people making out in public, they're married to somebody else." I think it was Rodney Carrington that said it.

Making out at Barnes & Noble? Sheesh! I agree. Have some respect and get a room.

Yeah, it's either an affair, or some kink.

Y'know, now that I think of it... in the kiddie section... sitting on six inch high chairs... in front of Curious George... that's pretty hot!
