Why the Kiss?

It's getting pretty romantic. You really like this person. Butterflies, tension. But, how do I express these feelings? What if I push my face against hers so our lips smack together? Ah yes, that's the stuff. The kiss seems very odd to me. What is about a kiss that feels so pleasant? There's probably a real answer for this, but I had a thought this morning as I leaned in, puckered up and felt the soft, cool pleasing touch... of water from a water fountain. Does a kiss remind us of being quenched?
