Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you, you’re cool, and fuck you, I’m out!

These words have been playing in my head ever since I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning.  People are pissing me off.  The Census woman who keeps harassing me; the parking meter attendants who want to suck the living blood out of me. The woman from my job who continues to send condescending e-mails. The homeless men who enjoy blasting KMEL outside my window at 8 o’clock in the morning.

I’m having a bad day and I don’t even have enough money to go out and drink it all away.  Ugh.  Call it day 21 of my menstrual cycle. Call it the case of the Monday’s that’s actually a Tuesday thanks to Memorial Day.  What I really need is some sexual healing.  However, the only one who can actually “heal” these wounds of hate is my sweetheart who’s 2,882 miles away.

The thing is, people need physical contact.  And I don’t mean a handshake or booty-grinding at the club.  I mean sweet, dear, and meaningful contact. Touch is the earliest sense to develop in the womb and the last sense to leave in old age. Babies who can perceive through touch, even without sight and hearing, fare much better, than the latter.  Although I’ve been complaining like one, I’m not a baby. So why then do I need touch?

The benefits of touch to a person’s health are phenomenal. Touch can reassure, relax and comfort. It reduces depression, anxiety, stress and physical pain; and can be healing. It increases the number of immune cells in the body, and has powerful effects on behavior and moods. Touch can be used as a form of alternative healing, in the form of touch therapy.  Therapist Virginia Satir states that human beings need four hugs a day for survival, eight hugs a day for maintenance, and 12 hugs a day for growth.

I’m surprised I’m not dead already. So I guess all I’m saying is next time you see me—give me a big hug. XXXO.

  1. i wish i could give you a hug right now but since i am too far away, all i can send is a long distance one…xo

  2. Hi. I am enjoying your blog…I set mine up but haven’t started posting just yet….the sense of touch talk really resonated with me because my boyfriend is a triplet…his mama read a bunch about touch because she knew there was no way she’d be able to give all her attention to all the babies at once. So while changing one child she’d touch the other two intermittently so they could feel her love and presence….much love and many hugs to you…

    • Oh Monique, how I adore and miss you.

      Just the idea of having to cuddling triplets all at the same time sounds wonderful, and challenging. Any woman who’s capable of doing that is a-m-a-z-i-n-g!
