Hugging too is sorely missed. I never initiate a hug. I am well aware of the “creep factor”. I allow the woman to make the move which I then will welcome their hug with open arms. And guys, please don’t unless one saved the life of the other then a hug would be understandable.
All of this lost casual physical contact has been replaced with the stupid fist-bump or elbow tap. Puhleese! Don’t bother. That’s just weird.
My two recent visits with Michelle and Joy were great. I enjoyed seeing their smiles. It was so nice to talk with someone who wasn’t scared to death to stand there with a naked face and converse like we always did in days gone by.
