A bit of nonsense for a Sunday evening. And I am not referring to the Will Powers song advising me not to have spinach in my teeth...
Are there are rules regarding the bisous? Are there hidden meanings?
My own research has found many differences. Let's start with my neighbour's darling little girls of barely walking, big toddler and youngster at first school classes. They will plant a big smacker on your cheek then offer their opposite expecting you to do the same.
A couple of posh French ladies at work - barely a brush of the cheek but I hasten to add these two ladies are as lovely as you could meet.
My daughter's landlady who is in fact Belgian. Usually goes right to right followed by left to left. But with me, she leads with the left. A Southpaw Biser... Is there a meaning there? (Apart from if you pay next months rent on time, I will go back to the right...)
But whatever, vive la difference, vive la bisous!
