Valentine’s Advice

In honor of Valentine’s Day, we couldn’t resist re-posting this special piece of advice from UMD alumna Minnie Hill, Class of 1925–a Recipe for Kisses:

To one piece of dark piazza, add a little moonlight. Take for granted two people. Press in two strong ones a small hand. Sift lightly two ounces of attraction, one of Romance. Add a large measure of Folly. Stir in a floating ruffle and one or two whispers. Dissolve half a small quantity of hesitation, one ounce of resistance, two of yielding. Place the kisses on a flushed cheek or lips. Flavor with a slight scream and set aside to cool. This will succeed in any climate if directions are carefully followed.

Her scrapbook really rocks!  Visit the University Archives to see the other treasures Minnie collected during her undergraduate days!
