I’ll bet you didn’t know that there was no official word in the French dictionary for "French kiss." Neither did I, and I can’t say that I ever spent an hour wondering about that. But now that’s been rectified in the 2014 edition of Petit Robert with the one-word verb "galocher" — to kiss with tongues. I’m sure that people all over the world will rest easier knowing that it’s official.
The story goes that French kissing was brought to the English-speaking world by soldiers returning from Europe after World War I. The French have always been known for amorous adventures. In French, la galoche is an ice-skating rink, an apropos origination for the newly recognized word galocher.
In other pointless news, today is Old Maid’s Day, and it’s also Hug Your Cat Day. While an old maid may welcome galocher, I wouldn’t recommend it with your cat.
