Pronunciation: rig-ORTHO-hiss

Sentence: Mama Obama’s outgoing, they say… To protocol spin doctors it was okay- To fistbump Sarkoszy and hifive the Prince… But hugging the Monarch made everyone wince. Forgetting that Bush was a world-class dunce, Her touch was derided and talked of for months… Clearly her gesture was somewhat amiss..

Today's definition was suggested by abrakadeborah. Thank you abrakadeborah. ~ James

Thank you! My former husband's family didn't hug and I hugged his Mother and she let out a loud gasp and went rigid... They all changed and became more loving towards each other, after I married into their family. It changed them forever and they all hug each other now. :) (I hug people I care about and love) Hugs are great! ;)
