The first girl I ever kissed turned out to be a Miss America contestant. I was a painfully shy teenager. When I was a sophomore in high school, I was selected to escort the sophomore maid at halftime of the homecoming football game. I am convinced to this day that it was intended to be a joke on me – knowing I was so shy and was expected to kiss her in front of probably 1,000 people. I’m still not sure how successful I was at kissing her, but we both survived. A few years later she moved to Montana and became Miss Montana and participated in the Miss America Pageant.
