A woman has started the hugging challenge. Melinda Schmidt, decided after moving to North Carolina, to start hugging strangers. She's pledged to hug at least one random person a day for a year.
Count me in. I don't know about a year, but I'll hug random people for the next month and record their reactions. I hugged three people for my first day of the hugging challenge and all were happy to receive a hug. Everyone except maybe the third girl. She's new and had no idea what was going on.
