Whenever he thought about it, he felt terrible. And so, at last, he came to a fateful decision. He decided not to think about it. ~John-Roger and Peter McWilliams

Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

What exactly qualifies as necking? I get a few pecks on the neck sometimes, but nothing that would produce a hickey or even come close. Is it a matter of lingering longer?

-Kissy Face

A: Dear Kissy,

Benvolio did a pretty good job with his answer to Board Question #2073. Yes, it's a bit more than a peck on the neck. (Also, I don't know if you did it on purpose, but I got a smile out of "peck on the neck" and "lingering longer." A question on necking isn't where I usually expect to find literary devices, so yours was refreshing.)

A: Dear Kissy

I remember joking with more than one friend that if it weren't for talks about chastity, I never would have heard some terms, such as necking, which just made us wonder what in the world it meant. Probably not what Church leaders were going for when they gave those talks.
