There's no such thing as a free hug! :-)

Best of luck to all.

Everyone here smells like clean laundry with just a whiff of coffee and almond.

Despite everyone's six-pack abs and rock-hard biceps, the hugs are all soft and pillowy.

And somehow we've all mastered the art of a squeeze and release, which is long enough to be comforting and not so long as to be awkward.

This is a good space.

I'll take you up on that hug and happily return it! With appropriate social distancing, of course.

Have a mug of cocoa and a still-warm-from-the-oven cookie, just like your favorite great aunt always offered when you'd had a bad day as a child.

In a pinch, grab a six-pack of TP and hug the soft rolls.

But please don't squeeze the Charmin!

Here in the Southern USA, elderly female relatives give the "squeeze and grunt" -type hug.

It's what my mother gave me during our most recent visit in which we could come inside the house and actually touch my parents.

That was a couple of weeks ago. I'm now treasuring the memory.



So, before I get dangerously maudlin, HUGS ALL AROUND to all here!

(Everyone feels so comfy. What's up with that? Is it the abs-'n'-biceps mentioned upthread or the extra padding I suspect is closer to reality? <grin>)

I like a hug that crescendos to a light squeeze and then ends with a pat on the back.

So here...

Hug.

Light squeeze!

Pat.

Now back to social distancing.

Aww...thanks!
