After all of the hubbub over the Obama’s visiting Queen Elizabeth, what did we really learn? That it is HIGHLY unusual for the queen to touch commoners, or for commoners (like Michelle Obama) to touch the queen. I could hardly believe the media made such a huge deal out of the “half hug”. I’m thinking it’s a good thing my brother in law, Scott, didn’t visit QE II, or we could have had a national crisis on our hands. He is from the South, and he BEAR-HUGS EVERYONE. Grant’s family is a touchy feely bunch. I came from a family that is a little more reserved- we just weren’t all about hugging and kissing every time we entered and left a room. As a matter of fact, the first disagreement Grant and I got into after we were married was in a grocery store, where he wanted to lay a big one on me in the frozen food aisle, and I told him later please. So now we know it’s not OK, to touch The Queen. What I really want to know- What were they talking about?
