Over time, Alyssa has been slowly learning an important lesson. When you meet men (especially for the first time), it is generally better to forego the usual hug in favor of a handshake. We have worked on this lesson for years and for the most part, she gets it.
Well, today she decided to pass the lesson along. As I hugged my younger brother (who is now taller than me) goodnight, she shouted out “Brittany!!! We don’t hug BOYS!”
Hilarious laughter ensued and after teasing her with a lot more hugs, brother and I parted with just a handshake.
