There is nothing sweeter than two people holding hands. It shows security and intimacy and love and friendship and support all at the same time. Watching an elderly couple hold hands is about as sweet as it gets.
In my daily perusal through the interwebs (which is very exciting), I came across this hysterical link about how to hold hands. I just had to share it because it is the perfect mix of ridiculously funny and amazingly sweet at the same time. Like yogurt covered pretzels.
The adorable factor is pretty high because you can imagine some awkward preteen acne-faced boy thinking about holding hands with some cute but shy girl he has a crush on. Funny in that there are tips like “Try not to hold hands with someone you like when you are freezing, because cold hands can be a major turn-off.” and “Visualize how it will feel. If you are nervous, think of how good it will feel if the other person holds back.” I’m pretty sure they mean if the other person squeezes back instead of “holds back”. Poor kids.
Then they include the video of otters who demonstrate the hand holding methods previously described. Tip: Watch the video all the way through. If it doesn’t melt your heart, then you’ve had a pretty tough day and you probably needed this. And if you need an extra added dose of cuteness, this is one of my go to websites for making me smile. Yeah, even though I’m not a cutesy, fluffy over-the-top animal lover, I can’t help but have my heart warmed by these photos. But who am I kidding, I read it for the articles.
Time to reflect on what is good in life, folks.
