Dear Linda, The official Mudcat hug is an official secret. It seems that unless this hug has a registered copyright, it is not permitted in public. With that said we will resort to plan B and the following will occur :
A. A short quick focus of the eyes B. A broad smile and " Hello " in various slurs and/or international jargon. C. The extension of arms, reaching around the other person and finally ending with " It's great to meet you in person ".
Please be aware this will all take place in moments and be a lot shorter than the time it has taken you to read and /or comprehend this endless run-on sentence.
