A Kiss on the Cheek Better Than a Handshake

According to Sally Bloomfield the fastest way to pass on germs is to shake hands.  A kiss on the cheek is safer.  What about an air kiss?  I still like the Indian greeting: plams together, thumbs toward your chest, and a slight dip of the head.  What do you think?


An Alternative Handshake

If you’re tired of shaking hands but don’t want to appear rude and busting knuckels isn’t your thing, here is a great alternative from a Dear Abby writer.  To signify a greeting and respect put your palms together, thumbs at your chest level.  Do it with a smile and this is a definite winner.
