Hugging Hurts

Sometimes we need a hug, a friend or sympathetic ear. But mostly we need a swift kick in the rear. Raised by hippies, Sesame Street and Care Bears, we've grown fond of our feelings, our demand for fair, our overly developed sense of sharing. Perhaps the pendulum should swing back just a little so our children can cuddle a friend who's more believable than make believe.

There are no words that compete. Sadly by the time we learn this, our bear hugging days are over and we hardly want to hug the one nearest to us as they are likely the ones who caused us to utter those three little words to begin with.
WTF?! :-(
