Thursday’s questions were:
1. Who said: We need four hugs a day for survival, eight for maintenance and twelve for growth?
2. The musical Kiss Me Kate is based on which play?
3. It’s étreinte in French, abbracio in Italian, abrazo in Spanish and awhi in Maori, what is it in English?
4. What is a kissing cousin?
5. An air kiss, a hug, a handshake or?
Points for answers:
Andrei got four.
Alwyn got four.
Gravedodger got three and a grin for #4.
Rob got four with a grin for #1 and a nod for #5.
Answers follow the break:
2. The Taming of the Shrew.
4. Someone, not necessarily a relative who you know well enough to kiss on greeting.
5. I second Virginia and have spent enough time with people from cultures which are much more demonstrative than ours to appreciate the way they greet and farewell each other with a kiss or kisses to the cheek in a completely platonic way. But if hugs and kisses aren’t mutual then the one who doesn’t want them rules.
