Awkward Hugging

I read this great blog today all about awkward hugs. Read it here.

To this list, I would like to add one of my own: The Armpit Attack.

The Armpit Attack is a direct result of the Awkward Side Hug.  Maybe side hugs work for some people.  However, if you're significantly shorter than everyone you hug, particularly males, you get an armpit in your face.  Some times even the better part of your neck and head shoved unceremoniously into a dark abyss of cotton and body heat.  Did you know the armpits are some of the warmest parts of your body?  Add a little man sweat to that and you have yourself a lucky day.  An Armpit Attack at its finest.


  1. i hear you. i just don't really like forced hugs, and i side hug is one of those things.

  2. Oh my goodness. I've experienced this one many times (I'm pretty short). There's nothing like a face full of armpit!

  3. Dances are also an awkward place for short people--many sweaty armpit encounters can be made at such an event.
