This cartoon is dedicated to my friend Stu, in memory of his infamous "hands round the waist" hug given to my dad the first time they met.

    Awesome. I remember giving a guy a hug once and his head went the same way mine went so it was like going in for a kiss, we both made the mistake of correcting and our heads again ended up going for the same place... at that point I pushed him away and bailed... I put it down to his bad hugging etiquette... keep to left dammit, just like driving.

    Thats great. I recall going in for a hug, but he was going in for a friendly greeting peck on the cheek, and I had to quickly pull back and change tatic, and in the confusion I kissed him on his wet old man eyeball.

    Not nice.

    Fast reflexes are required, esp if you are both 1 arm up 1 arm down huggers - as I am. Someone has to take the lead and do a quick arm flap change, other wise it's just uncomfortable and embarresing.

    Important to determine from the onset if they are coming in for an english peck on the cheek or a full blown body slam. Pressed in rubbing from side to side hugs are good if you secretly wanted a quick feel, because you can do it in the name of hugging and sort of get away with it.
