Free Hugs

My wife and I were in Ottawa this past weekend and a very memorable moment occured, here is my wife describing what happened:


A so-me moment happened this weekend! So when I was in Ottawa on Saturday and Kris and I were walking and there was this guy standing there with his arms out (as though waiting for a hug) so I looked around and there was no one with a camera, and he wasn’t really smiling, and the people crossing the street going towards him, no one was smiling at him so I assumed he was like the guy in old Mtl that gives ‘free hugs’… so I hugged him. He hugged back and then he said, I was actually waiting for that girl (the girl crossing the street) but we had a good laugh! Then after I crossed the street, 2 guys saw the whole thing and they assumed he was that type of free hug kind of guy too! I laughed so hard I was crying!

I’m so glad he didn’t freak out!
