Attached to the Old Town Hall in Prague there is a beautiful Astronomical clock and early evening on New Years Eve that is where we were walking, t'was delightful.

Beneath the clock I spotted a young man, long hair, beard, bright eyes, engaging smile. Upon his chest suspended by a piece of string there was a sign.

FREE HUGS.

"Look!" I said to Skip. She sort of harrumphed and then proceeded to deconstruct his agenda using award winning levels of cynicism, sneering and ignorance. It's a gift.

"Hah! No one is taking him on!" she scoffed.

Obviously his evil agenda was clear for all to see but me. Skip saw through him.

Was I informed? No.

Skip, for the record, is a petite, blue-eyed blonde and gives men sore necks and jabs in the ribs from their wives.

Your man remained unable to administer any free hugs. Serve him right, the evil wretch.

"Why don't you go and find out what he wants?" I suggested.

She marched straight towards him, said something, his smile lit up the square and his eyes twinkled like diamonds. The hug that followed would've made the coldest heart melt in an instant. Me next. Wonderful. What a delightful fellow.

"He was lovely!" Skip concluded.

"Yes, but what YOU started is truly wonderful!" I replied pointing back to where the young man stood.

Herself BEAMED!

Our "Free Hugs" fellow who when we first saw him was waiting for his first customer now found himself with a long line of people waiting patiently for their share of his personal magic.

"You started that" I said.

2019 - If the evil Witch of the east can start something, so can you.

Bon chance cette année
