So long, farewell....

My group of friends is now big enough that we've resorted to the "Gooooo team!" goodbye instead of individual hugs. We actually put our hands in the middle together. I've been trying to get them to adopt this amazing send-off that I first saw among a group in Ottawa. I was living there for a while and had glommed onto this group of friends and when we were all out at a pub and one person went to leave, all the others would applaud as they departed. It was phenomenal. The rest of the bar would be curious about what was going on and, being the polite Canadian joiners that they are, would often join in. It was such a great way to leave the party. So far, it hasn't caught on over here. But I'll keep trying.
