I am not a hugger. I like to hug my kids. I make exceptions for my family, sometimes. I like to hug my partner. I avoid hugging anyone else at all costs.
I am sorry for (insert ailment, loss, grief here). *Pats on back*
Also, it’s: right arm over, left under. Unless you’re my kid or my partner.
From my kids and my partner, I also like all varieties of hugs, to include surprise hugs, bear hugs, snotty hugs (just from my kids, okay?!), fever-ish hugs, tearful hugs and angry hugs.
