Why does my brain insist I want to kiss my best friend?

I'm a gal. She's a gal. Neither one of us is gay.
And yet, sometimes when I say goodnight to her after we've met for dinner, and even more so if I'm dropping her off at home and we sit in her driveway and chat for a few minutes before she gets out of the car, I have this vision of me kissing her and not in a friendly way. I can actually see it play out in my head like a little movie.
I don't particularly feel like I want to kiss her, or like I have to work hard to resist the urge. It's just there, this annoying, kinda inappropriate movie in my head.
I'm not the straightest straight person who ever lived - there are celebrity women that I think are hot, and occasionally I'll fantasize about a FFM threesome - but I don't really feel like I am bi, or even that I am sexually attracted to her. She's neither in my occasional threesome fantasies nor anything like the type of women who do appear in them.
So where does this little kissing mental film come from and how do I make it go away? It's been happening for a few years now so it's not going anywhere on its own.
