What better way to herald the beginning of Spring than to show you the results of my Posture Screening, perpetrated upon my personhood when I was in the seventh grade??? This form shows that I had two out of the possible five signs for... oh, let's not kid ourselves: a spinal deformity. And, Indignity on top of Indignities, the nurse spells my last name WRONG. But, to be fair, she shows REMARKABLE RESTRAINT in not writing anything under "Other defects noted".
My sister Jane performs a 'skit' wherein she is the person making the school's morning announcements over the P.A. system, "Attention, please, Attention, please: MEGAN HAS SCOLIOSIS!"
I always had a special fondness for Judy Blume's book, Deenie, about a teenager who has scoliosis and has to get a Milawaukee brace. That was my fear, having to wear a brace, but didn't have to do that. I think I just stood straighter at the next screening.
