Waving My Bum In The Air

I'm becoming increasingly aware that I'm addicted to bending over things. It's not something I intend to do, it's just, well, natural and instinctive! Give me a sofa, and I'll automatically lean on the back and stick out my bum. The same with a dining chair, or anything that's at bendable height. Which is all well and good is most circumstances, and will give friends in the know a good laugh when I subconsciously go around presenting my butt to the world, but it's a bit more worrying at work.

I don't have the best eyesight in the world, so sometimes if someone is showing me something I tend to want to get a bit closer to the screen. By, um, bending over with my elbows on the desk to get closer to the screen. And my bum waving in the air. Or in meetings, if we are working on something on the desks, drawings or diagrams for instance, I will end up kneeling on my chair, leaning into the centre of the desk. With my bum waving in the air. Are you spotting a pattern here? I know I am.

the next step at work, obviously, is to put a little hook at the edge of your desk.

Solely to hang your nice acrylic ruler from, of course. So you don't keep losing it...

Eliane, not a bad thing for a girl of your inclinations, pun intended. :)
Warm hugs,

Ha, whether you're bending over or not I think you're always asking for a spanking anyway!!

I seem to have a similar problem - I love to draw and paint. And I prefer to do that while standing up.. so I have spent significant amounts of my arts lessons bending over my table. And I just realized that. Whoops. Oh well. Must be the spanko intuition in me. :P
