Edward Alan Feldman of Orlando got an unusual Father’s day gift from his son, Brian, who’s a “conceptual artist”. He gave his dad a “24-Hour Healing Hug”. It began at midnight in a local boxing gym with spectators paying $10 to watch. At noon, they were invited into the ring to hug their own loved ones. Before the event, Brian said it would be a “healing and transformative experience… and likely the hardest project I have done to date”.
- His dad was so annoyed that as soon as the hug was over he told Brian he was adopted.
- My Dad would have hugged me for a minute and then said, “Who came up with this bright idea?”
