Everyone has that THING... that ONE THING that they are kind of known for. That THING that your friends know, and respect, that you do.
My THING = hugging. You cannot be my friend, and dislike hugs. If you are a friend of mine who doesn't like hugs (yes, it has happened), then you will LEARN to like hugs, at least MY hugs. My family and friends know that my thing is hugging, so whenever they say hello or goodbye to me, it's usually through a hug. :)
