The end of the handshake, as we know it

greetings around the world

Types of greetings around the world

Two businesswomen in suits shaking hands and smiling.

It has been a long time coming, but it appears we are near to the end of the handshake, as we know it.

One of the main factors  that seems to have brought about the demise of the handshake, as we know it,  may be all the bugs and viruses that have been going around recently. The handshake is being perceived as a medium that can spread germs

Which greeting is the cleanest?

The next obvious step is the  fist bump, but the question is, if someone extends their hand to you for a handshake, do you respond with a fist bump, just to avoid some nasty germs?

 I think that the fist bump, will gradually catch on, even with  mainstream business circles. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that if you will get the job if you fist bump someone who is extending their hand to you expecting a handshake.

Finishing up my projects

It’s great to be able to be able to start on a project and being able to finish it. I find that I do my best work if I  get straight to the project and do what needs to be done in order to complete the project…and the main thing is not to waste time!

See how she looks, see how she cares (how she cares)
I let her steal the night away from me

Nine o’clock this morning (this morning)

‘Cause she’s heart and soul
She’s hot and cold
She’s got it all, hot loving every night
Woah
