The Second Rule Of Fight Club Is…

10 Apr

My mother had this theory when I was little (I assume she still has it, but now it’s mine too) that everyone needs a certain amount of touch in their lives.  It’s why we massage, and have sex and kiss and hug.  Ladies are smart about it.  We know.  So we ask, we approach.  We put our arms out for a hug and make it last as long as we need.  I’m not afraid of the awkwardly long hug.  Sometimes I need a hug and sometimes it’s gonna take a while to fill up on touch.

Guys wrestle because they crave the touch just as much but, like the slow child at the passover seder, do not know how to ask.  They’re big fakers.  Pretending it’s a show of strength, making a big show of trying to throw his opponent off him, while grappling him to the floor trying to hold tight as long as possible.

I know your secret.

Do you want a hug?

    Also touching causes the brain to release endorphins into your bloodstream which makes you feel happy!!
