Friend: So, I read your blog today.
Me: Oh ya? You read the whole thing? Cool! I am glad someone besides my mother is reading.
Friend: So, you like hugs?!?
Me: Yeah, I love hugs. A good hug is great. Some people just give the best hugs, ya know?
Friend: I like hugs too!
Me: What do you mean you like hugs? We never hug!
Friend: I know. I think we need to talk about the incident.
Me: Oh my god I know exactly what you are going to say.
Friend: That time, at the bar. We hadn't seen each other for a few weeks. You came in for the hug and it was all weird and awkward.
Me: I know. The worst. I figured you weren't a hugger and I had invaded your personal space so, going forward there were no more hug attempts.
Friend: I know. But, it wasn't that I don't like hugs. It was just that you snuck up behind me and I had my big bulky winter coat and the chair I was sitting in was all tall and in a weird position...Then we didn't see each other for a few weeks and then the chance to discuss the incident came and went. And now a year later I read in your blog that you like hugs.
Me: And you mean this whole time we could have been hugging it out and we weren't? All because of a bulky coat and a badly timed hello hug?
Me: We should hug more.
I guess it might not be quite so funny in writing but I promise you it was hysterical at the time.
Have an awesome weekend. Hugs!
