We are now faced with another problem. We have permission to hug. The trouble is I’ve forgotten who is on my ‘hug list’. There were some people I hugged, some I shook hands with, some I tapped on the shoulder or put my hand on their arm. With one lovely friend who came to Spain with me, we have a double kiss. That was how we greeted in the Spanish church by dozens of people. I’ve never been kissed by so many men in one day!
Some of my friends have mentioned that they don’t like hugs. That’s fine, but what about the others. Will they think me unfriendly if I don’t and they do? Or will they think me forward if I do and they don’t? OK, kissing is out with masks on but I still have the problem. Do I hug or not hug?
