I, who also refuse to "grow up", have always wanted to play the cloved
fruit game.  I am also very touchy about how people approach my person, so
that tended to slow me down in concern (I had a difficulty with a "gentle"
when I first joined).  Also, it takes a bit of chutzpha to walk up to
someone and expect a kiss or whatever.
