He is sad because nobody will hug him.November 1, 2010
I, on the other hand, don’t particularly like to be hugged. I don’t mean by my wife or kids (of course!). Rather, I dread running into friends who like to hug people they haven’t seen in a while. Once, I saw a friend like this and they were with someone I had never met. When we said our goodbyes and gave the uncomfortable, but obligatory hug, the complete stranger who was with them wanted a hug too!
Perhaps I should add a porcupine coat to my Christmas list.
