I went to the movie's the other night with a couple of sister-in-law's and my sister-in-law Jill asked me when I was going to post a new blog! I didn't think anyone was paying attention! I guess I need to get writing, if only for my own benefit.
I met a new gal at church today. I have decided that American women need a way to greet women. Whenever I meet a new woman, I always smile, and greet them in a friendly manner, but otherwise stand there awkwardly. What do I do I think to myself? I don't mind offering my hand to a male, but to offer my hand to a female seems so, well, manly. It just feels a little awkward. So what do we do? Hug? Too intimate. Even if I were brave enough, I think someone might want to call the police. The Portugese offer beijinhos (little kisses). I spent two weeks in Portugal with my husband several years ago. Every time I was introduced to a woman, she would lean over and "pretend" kiss both of my cheeks. It was a warm and wonderful way to meet someone new. But we don't do that over here. Maybe we come up with something and start a new trend. Any suggestions?
