I got today’s message from a book
titled Chicken Soup for the Soul last week. It reminded
me of someone in this club. You can guess who.
We need 4 hugs a day for survival;
8 hugs a day for maintenance; and 12 hugs a day for
Hugging is healthy. It helps the
body’s immune system and keeps you healthier. It
relieves stress and cures depression. It induces sleep,
invigorates, and rejuvenates all at the same time. It
has no unpleasant side effects and is nothing less than
a miracle dreg.
Hugging is all natural. It is
organic and naturally sweet with no pesticides, no
preservatives and no artificial ingredients.
Hugging is practically perfect.
There are no movable parts, no batteries to wear out,
and no periodic checkups. It has low energy consumption
with high energy yields. It is inflation proof and
non-fattening with no monthly payments or insurance
requirements. They are theft proof, non-taxable,
non-polluting and, of course, fully returnable.
And just to see how great it is,
“Everyone stand up and give the person to either side of
you a beg bear hug. And smile”
