Holly's grandmother was taught to sit as if her spine was fused to an iron rod. I pictured one of those pieces of metal with little semi-scored divisions that you see at construction sites---I think they put them inside concrete to reinforce it. Kinda like long Tootsie rolls.
Hmmm... we haven't had a poll here in a while:
Do you sit up straight?
yes! almost always, if not always
sort of, most of the time
sort of, some of the time
sort of, occasionally
no. not at all, ever. slouch city.
