Hunchback

January 24, 2006 § 7 Comments

I have bad posture.  Oh yes, I am slouchy.

The worst part is that I wasn’t always like this.  I actually used to have really great posture (mom sort of beat that into me).  But when I moved to the states, I started getting laughed at in school for being so "stiff."  Add that to shy and bigfooted, and it wasn’t a pretty sight.  So I relented, and became oh-so-much-cooler by leaning on one hip and hanging my shoulders down low.  You got it folks, I will die having a twisty-straw shaped spine as a result of PEER PRESSURE.

Did you know women, Asians, and Caucasians are at the highest risk for osteoporosis?  Yep, I’M ALL THREE!  I’m doing the pilates/yoga thing.  There’s not much I can do ergonomically at work except tilt my keyboard up with a box of staples and hike my chair up.  I’m eating my leafy greens, taking my calcium supplements, and eating cheese and yogurt, but I still can’t drink milk without getting sick.  Oh well.

But I really am trying hard to remedy the situation so that I don’t end up looking like these chicks. So if you see me slouching out and about, do my mom (and me) a favor and yell at me.
