Maybe you should rewrite your bloggity exercise goal to equal one bonus kiss for your hubby for every comment you receive…
* The science of kissing is called
* A one-minute kiss burns 26 calories (measuring
energy-producing potential of food).
* Kissing releases the same
neurotransmitters (chemical messengers in the brain) as intense exercise, like
parachuting or distance running. The heart beats faster and breathing becomes
deep and irregular.
* Saliva, the mucus-filled slime that wets the
mouth, crawls with microscopic bacteria (single-cell organisms) that enter from
air, food, and dirty hands. Between 10 million and 1 billion colonies (groups of
bacteria) are swapped with each smooch! But saliva also contains antibacterial
chemicals that kill most bacteria before the germs are exchanged in a kiss. (ick.)
* A simple pucker uses two
muscles, the upper and lower orbicularis otis surrounding the lips. A passionate
kiss uses all 34 facial muscles.
So, go ahead and amuse him. Since his birthday is this coming Thursday, I'll give him a kiss for all the comments up until and including that day.
