I am really lucky that I have loads of affectionate people in my life. We like to hug. We’re huggers.
Especially when one has been in the hospital and continues to have a major illness (yes, the saga continues, but I really am getting better… slowly, day by day).
Still, everyone is hugging me hello, and in sympathy. Love that.
And we all lean in for the hug the left.
My ear infection is in the right ear.
And it hurts.
More importantly for the recipient of my hugs, it’s gross.
So I end up doing this awkward dance with everyone, heads bobbing back and forth as I try to force a right-handed hug. It’s like doing the funky chicken with no funk.
I am not kidding. Try it. You’ll see.
WE. ALL. GO. LEFT.
