always 2 sisters..
I'm no pussy
Handshake maybe (not a euphemism). Mostly it's 'Easy bro, you alright?' 'Yeah.'
do and always carry a picture of them in our wallets so if we want to kiss them we kiss the picture of them.
although not with tongues for a few years.
until the pre-chewed food is transferred
Dad - Handshake
Schwes - High five
There have only been about 3 exceptions to this in about 20 ears.
And that is without considering the ears.
I take my older brother privileges seriously. They may be in their late 20's and early 30's but they still need to know who is boss.
my youngest sibling is turning 20 though this month i might give him a hug
I will give my brother a one armed hug every birthday and christmas
but thats it
would pretty much make me want to vomit
would have put srs money on you being an only child
not even a hug. We get on well though and I don't really hug friends that often either.
and Spanish people.
We're working on it though and to date I've now hugged my dad a total of 3 times. Historically we've always settled for a valedictory hand shake in the manner of 2 people that have just made a small business transaction. Will hug my brother though. Kisses are just for mummy obvs.
Saying hello and goodbye at family gatherings is quite a production, the five of us are all over each other. My partner, who's from a much more physically reticent family (I've never seen any of them so much as touch each other) has more or less gotten used to it and will join in happily enough, but she can't believe how long it all takes.
and having never thought about it, I now think it'd be the weirdest thing to do. Physical contact kept to the bare minimum, please.
Like, you actaully kiss your siblings/family members ON THE MOUTH? Are you insane? That's completely gross.
