Hug injury (4) Tue, Aug 26, 2008
In the past few weeks alone, I've injured at least three people by hugging them.  It happens with short, skinny girls.  I go in for the obligatory friend hug, wrap my arms completely around the person, feel too much space between us, pull the person towards me, and pound them in the face with my shoulder.  It usually hits their chin or their eye socket bone, so there's some nice solid contact involved.  I always feel so bad, not so much because I hurt a person, but because I'm such a socially awkward idiot.  Please, someone, help me. #psychology

I believe practice is the only way around this, Dave.  Join the ranks of us "huggers" and soon you'll be an old pro.  Perhaps Wendy could join the ranks too...you guys could practice together.  :-)

We do practice together, but Wendy's not that short.  I'll have to find a stunt wife.

Didn't Elliot Spitzer have a "stunt wife"? ;)

Yes, but he practiced more than hugging.
