Originally a word for kiss
... but has since been smothered, warped, and twisted by today's general sex-crazed Western society to mean several ridiculous, perverted sexual meanings...just like most of all the English words.
The word is buss, and it means 'to touch with the lips' - not necessarily against someone's mouth - to express love, affection or greeting. Can be used in certain moments when a kiss
is just too awkward or unnecessarily full-on; or when a friendly nuzzle with the nose just doesn't convey enough meaning.
1. He expressed his concern with a gentle buss on her shoulder
2. At the party, she had no intention of succumbing to peer pressure, and so a quick buss on her friend's cheek was all the action they would witness.
3. "We'll be okay," he whispered as their house burned down. He felt too saddened to give her a kiss, and so instead risked giving her a guilty buss on the cheek, hoping she wouldn't find out he'd left the stove on.
