Some people like to be hugged and some don't; some like to say and hear "I love you" and some just get embarrassed or choke on the words. I've never been able to figure that out; something in their genes or experiences affected them? When I was a toddler, I was famous for telling half the population I loved them and wanted a kiss. Come to think of it...the female half of the population! My mom fondly told the story of how I told the Easter Bunny (a young woman wearing a bunny suit in front of a department store) that I loved her and wanted a kiss. Ms. bunny happily complied. I believe I was 2 years old...or was it 20? Even after the demise of the Easter Bunny I never lost my attraction to young ladies in bunny suits. I've noticed animals also vary a lot when it comes to snuggling. Tom

Editor's Note: Kissing the Easter Bunny when you are two is one thing, but kissing her when you're twenty is another, you should at least have bought her a cup of coffee first!

I enjoyed reading this, because I could have written that first paragraph about my own journey. (Not that I would have written it as artfully as you did.) Methinks that there are many moms (and dads) in our age group who have similar feelings.

Editor's Note: I think our age group spends some time going over their lives, Gramma, and deciding where we did good and where we went wrong! Thanks for the comment.
