The Sunday Squeeze #2 – The Ariel Fiasco

The year was 2006.  My son was 7 years old and not very interested in girls at the time.  Okay, almost any female not named “Momma” was yuckie at the time.  My daughter wanted badly to complete her collection of princess autographs on her hat, so we talked him into meeting with her.  It started out innocently enough.  Ariel asked where we had swum in from and the kids laughed and joked with her.  Ariel offered my son a hug.  Then it went wrong, very, very wrong!
Ariel, in her typical gentile demeanor leaned over to give him a kiss on the cheek.  He attempted to lean away and she planted a good one on him!
He was not a happy camper! I had to promise him a Dole Whip to allow me to take the first photo. He still hates the photo and isn’t too fond of the memory, but it’s pretty special to us. He wiped the lipstick off his cheek as quickly as possible. I bought the Dole Whip as soon as we could reach Adventureland and we were off to ride Pirates of the Caribbean together!

Every Sunday I’ll post a new photo of a great hug moment with a character and a description of what was taking place at that time.
