Today is National Hand Shake Day

Today is National Handshake Day. Handshakes make the word go around, Nation heads shake hands promising each other peace, people shake hand to start interacting, and the all levels of business deals are sealed with a handshake.  If suddenly, we all stopped shaking hands, we all might implode.

Before I went into the Navy I worked at Eastman Atlantic Mfg Co, on Chattahoochee Avenue, in Atlanta.  The branch manager had the worse grip of anybody I ever shook hands with.  I always felt a firm handshake was a sign that they appreciated that they were shaking hands with me.  The branch manager would present his hand, so to speak, limp and dangling,  did he expect people to kiss it and then courtesy?
