I love to spend time at the airport just watching the planes take off. On this day it was rainy so I was watching them from the comfort of inside the general aviation terminal. After about an hour as I was getting ready to leave I decided to ask the lone gentleman working for a hug story.
Maybe I had been sitting around too long and I was deemed suspicious. Maybe he doesn’t like talking to strangers. Maybe I will never know, but I was rejected. He was very polite but it was a no nonetheless. I tried another tactic. “Ok, well, can I give you a hug?” “No, I don’t think so.” I wished him a great day and was on my way.
I held my head up high as I walked away but removed the knife from my heart when I got back to my car. Ok, maybe that was a little dramatic but rejection is never easy. The thing is it’s never stopped me before and it won’t stop me now.
Please accept this blog as my virtual hug to you.
