So, I'm home for the holidays. Home being Massachusetts, just in case you didn't know. Today I met my good friend Sandra at Harvard Square. A splendid time was had by all and, after we parted ways, I wandered around a bit. As I was approaching the T station to make my escape, I saw several people holding signs advertising "free hugs." Oh my. Yes. This brings several questions to mind:
1. Aren't hugs usually free anyway?
2. Were the Harvard students whiling away their winter break with a little sociological experiment?3. Was this a ploy to attract converts for some new cult or religion?
4. Was it a performance piece?
