Talk is cheap; I wanna hug

I wanted to give my little sister a hug today.

She was crying as she told Mom and me a story, and I don't like to see people sad, anyone really but especially people I love.

But I was sitting on the couch (see: not wheelchair-bound) and she was standing behind my wheelchair. I suspected I could get off the couch and hug her, but it would have broken up the conversation. And any transfer with me involves a sense of risk, so I figured it would be uncool to make my crying sister pick me up off the floor.

So I just listened. When she was leaving, I told her I wanted to hug her and we all laughed.

But it really sucks.

I know how you feel. When people greet each other and give each other a hug, for some reason I don't get the same. Always wonder about that.

I wrote about you crying so everyone would write in and way "Wow, Matt, you are the best brother ever!" But whatever.

And yes, I am right there with you, sdt.
