There was a bit of a love fest on the fourth hour Friday.
A story on TODAY.com suggests it might not be a good idea to hug your coworkers. At least, not the "full body" kind, which experts said may blur lines of appropriateness and make your co-workers feel uncomfortable.
But because the ladies like nothing better than to blur the lines of appropriateness and make their coworkers feel uncomfortable, they arranged a kind of all-staff cuddle fest. Bobbie and Sara snuggled with the crew. KLG also demanded to know whether or not Anthony the cameraman likes to hug her.
"Here's the thing, we all know, there is a point when you're hugging someone and it becomes weird," Hoda admitted. "And we don't know when that is."
But KLG had a pretty good idea. "When they have their tongue in your ear," she replied. "I had an uncle who used to do that."
Think that was the point you were looking for, Hoda.
