To Hug or Not to Hug
I've never been a hugger. Well, I take that back. I hug on my kids and even a couple, like two, kids that I did not myself give birth to, but past that it stops. Oh I'll give you a nice smile and even a compliment but a hug.... notsomuch. What's wrong with a quick wave?
I enjoy huggers, though. I miss them.
That's why I'm going to try to become one.
I was telling my friend Rachel about this and she said "I think you're just either a hugger or you're not." She herself (is that proper grammar?) is not a hugger but agreed that she appreciates a great hug from those who are.
More and more I meet women that are here in my area alone. No family, no super-close friends, even. We say Hi and exchange pleasantries, then we get in our minivans and go home.
Well, No. More.
I would continue to elaborate on this but I need to leave to pick up BigBoy from preschool.
The experiment starts there. I'm going to hug someone and burst my personal space bubble if it kills me.
I'll let you know how it goes... wish me luck!
