Yesterday on my walk I looked over and saw an oddly shaped person. Then I realized it was two people. They were hugging. Then I remembered how sweet hugs are and how much I love them.

hugs are severely underrated.

they're so versatile. there are all kinds of hugs:

-of course theres the spousal type embrace.
- theres the 'church hug'. you know the kind that is done with one arm
- theres the i havent seen you in a while hug
- theres the handshake hug guys mostly do because just hugging could be misinterpreted.
- theres the handshake hug that turns into a full hug
-theres also the somewhat affectionate hug between a man and woman who arent in any sexual type relationship

is that all the types ; )

Sammy--I LOVE your hug list. Agreed.

One you forgot was the "goodbye hug" --I've had a lot of those, since I move around a lot. Also, the "goodbye forever" hug is pretty intense too.
