"Smile, it's the second best thing to do with your lips."

Apparently, someone thinks he's not getting enough "action." I just got this email from Danny a Pookieville blog reader.

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. And then no more. He must be rationed. If he's lucky, I'll use all 34 facial muscles per kiss. And I'll still do my sit-ups, which are actually more like crunches than sit-ups.

He's got a good idea actually...kissing can lead to other enjoyable calorie-burning activities too!
But maybe you could accept the kisses from hubby as a reward for all the tummy crunches you'll be doing for each blog comment - you'll burn calories double fast that way!

wow and my husband would be pretty darn busy if i did that. hmm maybe I'll finagle him to do that for me. but then he already knows how many comments i get. and he isn't ready for number 7.
