But lately, we've seen hugs devolve into friendly wrestling matches. I've seen some high-fives that are more like very vigorous hand slaps. (Not that I'm so old that I cannot remember the delight I took in wrestling when I was five years old—I remember really enjoying friendly wrestling, especially with my dad! Are boys so different from puppies in this way?) But enough's enough, so we've developed a Kindergarten Handshake.
Tonight's homework is to teach the handshake to a family member.
It has 4 parts. Parts One and Three are the same: the ordinary, familiar handshake. The whole thing goes like this:
Part One: Regular handshake
Part Two: Soul Brother's handshake
Part Three: Back to the regular handshake.... and
Part Four: Thumbs up!
