Reader says hugging tradition should continue

Posted: Thursday, July 24, 2008

This is a letter to all huggers. Stop hugging right now. Don't shake hands either. If you see somebody you are friends with or fellow employees, turn around and run. When you see them try not to make eye contact if any way possible. If you do, call them later and tell them you are sorry.

I am 77 years young and have been hugging babies, men, women old and young alike good looking and plain and if they are real friends, either male or female, I give a little peck on their chin. Most of them, whether they are friends, fellow employees or relatives, know I am a hugger and they hug back.

Oh, if you don't want a hug or hand shake, just say no please. Don't wait till I hug you three times and decide to get me for sexual harassment.

And Mr. Kopp, if you and our beautiful governor see me on the street and introduce yourselves, I'll either shake your hand or hug you. And if you ignore my hand and want to hug me, bring it on.

I am very sincere about this. Let's not let it get out of our traditions.

Hugs and kisses to everybody.
