You Touched Me!

I wonder, how you would react if this happened to you?

I drove to school, the traffic was light and I parked my car with ease. After my first class I was walking towards the library from the courtyard, then something extraordinarily strange happened. A student slipped his hand in mine and walked with me a few steps. I turned to him and said, “What are you doing, do you think I’m someone you know?” That was the only thing that I could think to say. He said it was for his psychology class. Another one of my random moments that made me giggle and think, ‘how peculiar’.

My curiosity was peaked, so I found an article online that I read and found it interesting called, ‘Why Holding Hands is important, According to Science’ by Sarah Wolstencroft, (2017) https://www.entitymag.com/holding-hands-science-intimacy/ . I would never have looked that up if it weren’t for this strange encounter.

One thought on “You Touched Me!

  1. I smiled reading this also. I like these insights and it made me think that someone this student saw you as a safe person, or he would not have been so brave. I think you were born to be a storyteller, when I share a speech in Toastmasters I always recommend storytelling as a proven way to draw in the listener. Well shared and I am intrigued by the link about hand holding. Which is better holding hands or hugging? I enjoy both with my dear wife of 41 years.
