An Impromptu Act
December 12, 2012 1:49pm CST
As I was walking home from class, there were 3 or 4 young fellas and 1 girl (all college age)on the sidewalk a little distance from me. The tallest guy of the bunch was shaking hands and giving everyone a shoulder hug. As I walked up to them, I looked at the one who was shaking hands and giving hugs and stuck out my hand and said, "Hey, how about a handshake and a hug?" So we shook hands and did the shoulder hug. Everyone had a good-hearted laugh about that. As I walked away, I had a smile on my face and felt pretty good. I'm smiling about it even now. Has anyone else done something impromptu like this?

I have never done something like that coz I fear that I might be thought of as either a criminal or just plain crazy. It is hard to just pop into a conversation of people whom you do not know. You may never know how they'd react to what you're going to do.
