Hugs Are Good
Ok, I'm not a huggy sort of person as a rule, but I do enjoy one now and then.

They are quite a good thing. Glad you got them. There is something to be said for the human contact. I go through phases of how much I want to be hugged and so long as it isn't someone I don't know I am pretty good with it. A couple of girls with a sign saying free hugs were standing at the exit of the grocery store yesterday. Have to say I was glad to see they were gone by the time I left!

That's great, Mason! How about a virtual one..


ETA: I just remembered something...I was in the market shopping with DH several years ago and some random guy just came up and gave me a hug. I didn't say anything because I was shocked and speechless. My DH glanced back and saw what was happening, but didn't say anything. When the guy let go I must have looked shocked and kind of mumbled something and he said "Well, if you're going to advertise" and gestured to my sweatshirt. I dont remember what it said exactly, but it said something about a hug so I guess I asked for it. DH said he figured I knew the guy so he didn't do anything. Anyway though that was amusing.

Even though I am not a hugs sort of person most of the time I really do like the whole free hugs movement. It's a really nice idea.

If you haven't seen it the video about it is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vr3x_RRJdd4

Virtual hugs are good.

That musta been an interesting sweatshirt.

The free hugs thing is world-wide.

I have to admit that I do tear up a little when I watch these videos. If only everyone would just hug everyone else how different would the world be?
