The nose-bump: a sign of affection

Nose-bumped my sister awake this a.m. to welcome her home. She didn't mind, having missed me terribly during her college sojourn. Wonder if admissions would consider my application? Then again, I'm probably overqualified, being so scholarly.

The nose-bump, in case, Dear Reader, you are not familiar with this move, is a form of greeting that is at once enthusiastic, loving, and, shall we say, in your face. It works like this: home in on your beloved's face from a distance of about two feet, quickly, steadily and without any loss of momentum, until you bonk it directly nose-to-nose, leaving the bestowed-upon bumper slightly dazed, face moist, and unbearably happy.
