Yesterday evening I came home after being in Washington State for two weeks visiting my dad, and apparently Lumpy missed me, because she wouldn't stop hugging me. We're talking nonstop hugging here, folks. Every five minutes. It would have been adorable, but when I am tired, I cannot STAND people touching me. And I was pretty exhausted, after getting up at 5 AM to catch my plane in time, and then having a two hour layover in Milwaukee. So I said, "Lumpy, I missed you a lot and I love you, but please stop hugging me until tomorrow." Mom joked, "You might have to pay her." Lumpy jumped on that with both feet and said, "Yeah!! Give me five cents and I won't hug you until tomorrow." I am now five cents poorer. It could have been worse- she could have asked for a whole quarter.
