A sixth grade Presbyterian boy "meets up" (they planned it, but came separately) with his "girlfriend" at their friend's bar mitzvah (that's the Presbyterian spelling). Underneath the stars (they totally snuck out), sitting on a log, she says, "Your dad's a thief because he stole all the stars from the sky, and put them in your eyes..." He laughs, and says, "That's a pick up line" (like a boss). They both laugh awkwardly, then kiss. Once. Quickly. And forevermore. "Two Princes" by the Spin Doctors is the answer to "What song was playing during your first kiss?" #iknowwhataprinceandloveroughttobe
