H is for Hugs

Some people like and need hugs, others avoid them. I'm somewhere in the middle. Mostly I avoid them but there are times when a hug is just the thing. Other times I would prefer some good solid assistance, like with the dishes, or picking up your garbage you leave everywhere, or bringing me food.

I have a son who used to say to me when I was crabby, "Aw, someone needs a hug." No, I don't need a hug, I need this kitchen floor mopped now get out of my way.

It's not that I am anti-hug. That would be like being anti-teddy bear or anti-cute adorable baby. But there are times when a hug just gets in the way of what really needs to happen. You know what I mean?


  1. I'm one of those that needs hugs. I've learned not to give them, though, without checking to see if the person wants to receive it. That was an important lesson.

  2. I hear you,too. There are times when you really need that hug and sometimes you just want to say,what you really feel!!


I don't post very often, but if you leave a comment I'll know someone is out there reading. And then I will post more! Bwa ha ha!
