That first bit sounds so much like something I would say to someone!Wes: When you get meet the woman who shoots back something like Ah, that is why you are so fat -- to cushion the blow when I throw the vacuum cleaner at you. Then youll have found your true match ;-)
Loopy: given the last bit you added in, Id say it is just the perils (or perks!) of the job. Probably will help a lot of people get over some of their body hang-ups because touch is gonna happen. So long as you dont start making opportunities, I think you are still good (to elaborate: if he has a tummy worth feeling up, good chance he is self-conscious about it, especially at 18 y.o. Repeat occurrences like this where someone is touching it, and it isnt a big deal, they dont recoil in disgust, they dont say anything, they just carry on because really it isnt all that big of a deal, will hopefully help normalize his body to him. So by making him more comfortable with being touched youve done a favour to him and to any future partners he may have).
and finally: IC that all the heat weve been getting this Summer has me kind of in vacation mode including tendencies to forget about chores and to spend money much too vigorously. Need to get back into productive/thrifty mode! Far too big a pile of clothes needing ironing, cat hair is threatening to take over, and I really need to stop volunteering to buy ice coffee/lemonade/ice-cream once or twice a day!
Oh definitely! You end up being pretty hands on with the people you work with! It doesn't help that the people I work with are all quite touchy-feely anyway... I had to remind one of the girl the other week that I am their boss, and slapping me on ass isn't appropriate behavior. :doh: But yeah, I think he is kinda self conscious about his size, but touching each other is such a common thing at the farm that it wasn't until about an hour later that I realised that was why he suddenly went all stiff and uncomfortable.
I'll have to resist the overwhelming urge, then.Eh. It's not a foul unless you start motorboating.
