Cloris Leachman's Latest Chapter
The author, actress, and dancer talks about aging, cooking, her new book -- and why she never gets stressed out.
Oh God, everybody.
Anybody in particular?
I think smokers need hugs, don’t you? They’re so busy smoking. What if they
just hugged instead? Wouldn’t that be better? And by the way, I don’t want
to confuse hugging with patting on the back.
Patting on the back?
Yes, that’s not a hug. That’s a pat. Men pat a lot. They hug quickly and
then pat. That means, “No more hugging, my wife is looking.”
So what’s a real hug?
Close your arms around and just feel each other. Make it warm and slow. The
world needs more of those.
