Date a girl who belches before you go to kiss her for the first time. Inhale a mixture of watermelon lip balm and wheat beer, as you get closer to her lips. Take her tongue into your mouth and taste the hops you spent your last $12 on. Savor her 7-11 chili cheese nacho belch as you press her into your body and clench her back.

Date a girl who belches and then invites you to her apartment to cook you dinner. Study her as she repetitively belches because she put too much club soda in the Old Fashions she mixed.

Go to her dinner table and eat under a fetid cloud of her belches.

When your friends beg you to marry her, already know you’re going to.
Date a girl who belches when she meets your family for the first time at your family reunion. Date a girl who lets out a nervous belch just as she’s shaking your mother’s hand. Shrug your shoulders, smile, and fan the smell away with your hand when she looks at her feet and blushes because your mother gasped in horror. Fall more in love with her when you see her sitting on the lawn burping the alphabet with all your nieces and nephews. Tell your mother, “I know” after your mother nudges you and says, “She’s going to make a fabulous mom one day.”

Go on a honeymoon with a girl who belches underwater while you are scuba diving with a group of other honeymooners.

Say goodbye to a girl who belches. When people pay their respects with baking pans filled with lasagna, casserole and gelatin, remember how all those things made her belch. As they lower her into the ground recall how you stayed up late at night watching her let out sleepy belches. Laugh at how most nights you faced her the other direction because the merciless smell wafting from her open mouth was too pungent for you too handle. Tightly squeeze the pillow she used to belch on and inhale her glory.
