Interesting Quandary

I've been married for ten and a half years, the vast amount of that time happily.   So needless to say, the number of other men I've kissed is limited to a very few, and all of those platonically on the cheek.  My dad, Nolan's dad, various uncles, and of course my boys.  However, for the first time in over a decade, I find myself kissing another man.

It's just in the show, but it's seriously awkward.  Mark, my co-star, is a very sweet man, and he's perfectly fine as far as men go, but ARGH!

I can't get over the fact that I'm kissing another man.

It's weird.

And it FEELS awkward, like we're trying to manufacture chemistry.  Which, to some extent, I guess we are.  (His wife is seriously gorgeous.  And he's no Nolan.)

I never had a problem with kissing on stage before I was married, and until now I haven't had occasion to, since.  However to add insult to injury, one night at rehearsal this week, after 'the kiss,' I forgot my line.  How embarrassing.  I mean the kiss wasn't mind-blowing or anything, but it was, oh, I don't know, distracting, I guess.  And we just stayed there, centimeters apart for like 15 seconds 'til I remembered that I was supposed to say something.

Good grief.

I just need to memorize my lines, try not to bump into the furniture, and not let the fact that I have to kiss this guy twice every night and act like I really want to, throw me for a loop.
