The awkward high-five



I was expecting 7 heavy packages last week but was hoping to be home when they arrived. Thursday evening, as munchkin and I entered the building, the security officer announced that I had mail — lots of mail!

It was late, so I assumed I’d have to go collect all of them from the office the next day, one by one. But to my amazement the security officer said they were already delivered to our place upstairs and he had taken them up himself. Sweet!!! That was awesome service and this girl was certainly elated about that! He had made my day!

I gave him an enthusiastic ‘high-five’ when perhaps I should have given him a ‘grateful’ handshake. It was awkward but he played along (eventually). I know, you’re probably wondering what I was thinking, but I was just excited!

Alright,  alright, I have to admit that I’m one to give highfives from time to time. I don’t know why, they’re just fun! Right?? But they sure can be awkward if not reciprocated. Sigh… Oh well, I might have to stop doing that! 😔

So my question is this, what awkward thing do you do that perhaps should be retired from your repertoire?

Am I the only one who loves to give the occasional ‘highfive’?

Eager to hear your thoughts.
