I noticed a news heading claiming that cuddle parties were the latest trend sweeping the nation. Having never heard of such a thing, I clicked on this link: http://www.cuddleparty.com/what-is/. Two hours later: You have to shell out $20 for the privilege of putting on your PJs and baring your soul to a bunch of strangers! Wouldn't it be better to just get a dog? The site says they are in their 11th year, so I guess it took some time to catch on and sweep the nation.
