“He’s gonna do this handshake,” the major said. “It’s called the dominance shake. He does it to everybody.”
Eklund was a Catholic convert and had a tendency to tell me more than he should, inside the confessional and out.
“The dominance shake,” I said, amused.
“That’s what he calls it. He’s going to take your hand in his, grip it real hard, and then twist his wrist so his hand is on top of yours. That’s the dominance position. And then, instead of shaking up and down, he’ll pull you in and slap you on the shoulder and feel your bicep with his free hand. It’s Fehr’s little way of peeing on your personal tree.”
Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
