Bear Hugs Make Me Tipsy

Since I’m not steady on my feet to begin with, bear hugs can rock my world. I was at a birthday party for my best friend’s daughter and I hadn’t seen her parents in years. Her dad is a big lumberjack with a big beard and an even bigger heart. When I saw him across the room, I knew he was coming over to give me a big bear hug. There was nothing for me to hold on to except him. When he hugged me, I was enveloped into his arms and his beard. I felt like my legs were just dangling there. After he let go, I grabbed onto his arms to steady myself because I felt like I was going to fall down. He looked at me puzzled and I said, “Bear hugs are great but please make sure I’m steady on my feet before you let go and walk away.” He said, “Don’t worry. I’ve got you.” To this day, whenever I see him, he comes at me in slow motion and before he gives me a hug, he says, “I got this. You won’t fall down. I promise.”
