Hazel and me, the rematch

Mo asks exactly how the pick and roll works. (Mo doesn’t watch basketball much. OK, any.) “So I would just have to get between you and Hazel as you go by?” I suggest an elbow check. I am not confident she will cooperate.

It’s another Sunday trying to make it into church without getting the Hazel Hug. The moment I’ve been dreading for weeks.

We enter. I prepare for my demise. And then.

Hazel is facing away from me, chatting with another 120-year-old woman.

I am deprived.

Suddenly, I want a hug. Is she purposely snubbing me? Was it something I said? Do 120-year-olds have Internet access?

I consider lining up and waiting my turn, but Mo is tired and wants to get inside so she can go to sleep.

Today’s talk was about spreading the word or Nutella or penguins or something. But that’s not really what I needed.

What I really needed was a hug.

Maybe next week, Hazel?

    Never fear, the Hazels of this world don’t go away. She’ll be there next week with open arms.

    She knew if she just played a little hard to hug, she’d soon have you beggin’ for it!
    You DO learn a few tricks while living to be 120, you big galoot!

    Way to go Hazel, the old playing hard to get play! The good news is you still have the pick and roll and all 5 time outs if you decide you don’t want that hug next week!
    I know this to be true in the Book of Nutella, it is found in Nutella 3:19.
