The Daily Ping

P is for Ping. That's good enough for me.

Lean Forward

I have pretty lousy posture.

At this point in my life, I feel I can blame it on using a computer since the age of 5. Back in the olden days, my first monitor was a 13″ black and white TV. I almost always leaned in to get a good look at what was going on. I became nearsighted, too.

But now I mostly notice it when I’m in meetings. The back of the chair might as well not be there; I lean in for no good reason, resting my elbows on conference tables. I still lean while computering and internetting but it seems silly.

Admittance is the first step. But I can’t be alone in this. Is this something which plaques other youngish folks? And how do I start reversing the trend while I still can?

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
