Day 234 – Hypocrite

4 HUGS, 2 children, 2 adults (1 husband, 1 Mother in law)

I am a hypocrite. Here I am attempting to advocate hug awareness yet I avoid spreading the awareness on important days in my life. I started thinking about this because I am heading on a small vacation to Buffalo, NY this weekend. Just hubby, 5 year old and me. 21 month old is staying behind with mother in law because we are going to a football game. (Woo Hoo! Go Bills!) I know I will hug some hotel employees and hopefully some airline employees, maybe some security staff at the stadium? Anyway, then I got to thinking about the game itself. I have a real opportunity here. Signs are allowed and I am going to be close to the field. How great would it be to hold up a big sign, HUG ME!? Instantly in my mind I shot the idea down thinking, no, this is a family vacation and I don’t want to upstage that. Ok, that is clearly an excuse because I am afraid. Afraid of being so bold, afraid of what people will think of me, afraid of getting in trouble. But, really, what could be better for a family vacation than an incredible story about the time mommy was crazy and held up that Hug Me sign. Oh boy. Will I do it or won’t I? Guess you will have to wait until Sunday to see…

Please accept this blog as my virtual hug to you.

  1. Make the sign!! “Bills Score! Hug Me!”

    Sorry to see them take a downturn lately. I am a huge Browns but I like the teams from smaller markets. I am always amazed with how many Bills fans there are around here. There are a couple on Twitter.

    Have a good trip!
