Lovers sighted at 1400 hours

Last week, around two in the afternoon on two different days, I spotted three (!) couples at various neighborhood intersections giving each other farewell snuggles and kisses. Oh, these people really didn’t want to let go of each other, but alas, France only gives you two hours for “lunch.” Made me think about why the French lunch hour is so long. Is it really because people want to chat and enjoy their food? Or is it because it gives them just enough time to spend with their “petits amis”?
