He hugged me too much!
I just had to write this story:) My son is playing on the Allstar team and we are responsible for getting sponsors. Now, this is tough. Nobody wants to part with any cash that they really don't have right? Well, sales was my background along time ago so, I don't mind asking (begging) for sponsorship. On Friday I decided to get all dolled up, I tell Jordeyn to put his uniform on and we go out with our sponsor forms ready to hustle!
Our first stop, my favorite Mexican Restaurant, also, I know the manager Norman, he used to work part time at my childrens school. We walk in, my hair is all out, my face is painted, I'm wearing a beautiful blouse with a very subtle but, tasteful plunge to my neckline and we ask for Norman. Mind you Norman has only ever seen me at school and I usually got my mommy disheveled look going on! Well, he walks over looks me up and down and says, "Wow, you look great, then he hugs me!" OK, so I didn't even know we were on hugging terms but, I go along with the slight molestation because I've got to get a D___n Sponsor!!! So, I go into my pitch and he is talking about baseball to me and Jordeyn and then out of nowhere he hugs me again and says, "You look so good, WOW!" Again, I smile and I steer him back to baseball sponsorship. Excitedly he says, "Usually each year we do one team out of 10, however since I know you I'm going to push this with the owner!" So, I said, "That's wonderful please do!" Then he grabs me again and gives me a goodbye hug! I'm like, yikes I think this guy is feeling me up, these were not church hugs, it was chest pressing upon chest!!!! Then on top of everything else he gives me a kiss on my cheek!
As, Jordeyn and I happily leave the restaurant, my 11 year old son says, "Mom I think Mr. Norman likes you a lot, because he hugged you like 3 times and kissed you!" I tried to down play it a little, I think I said something like, "Oh, he was just happy to see us babe." Jordeyn wasn't buying that as I caught his little eyebrow raise. I'm sure he was thinking about calling DAD!
How about you guys, what do you do when some one hugs you too much?
