Plot Description

Spoiler warning! The narrator is a girl who explains that her mother has warned her against kissing boys. “Just one small kiss and one small squeeze / Can land you with some foul disease.” The narrator forgets the advice though and lets Tom Young steal a kiss behind the house after school. “Oh, woe is me! I’ve paid the price! / I should have listened to advice. / My mum was right one hundredfold! / I’ve caught Tom’s horrid runny cold!”
