I'm not a particularly flexible person either, my body shape is like early troglodyte

Also fuck your young, healthy knees.

But actually last night I was sitting in a chair kind of slumped down and sideways on my right hip with my legs crossed and when I got up my entire left side was asleep or cramped. From here on out, I will only sit like this:

NEVER! Just so that's clear.

I am weirdly flexible and double jointed. Not because of any exercise (lol, yeah right) or anything I do, I just always have been. I can do weird things with my elbows and stuff too.

I just caught myself doing this. I always do it the same way so that it's my left leg tucked up under my right with my left ankle sitting right under my right thigh. Never the other way round.

I think this is like that thing where if you fold your hands, you always put the same thumb on top of the other, and if you switch it feels really weird, somebody told me once it had to do w/ dominant side of brain?

Huh! I just tried it with my right under my left and it was totally weird. Just tried the folded hands thing and am definitely left thumb over right. Interesting!

that picture.. I can't even figure out how a body can get in that position. did you people all have your kneecaps removed?

Huh? If you were kneeling, couldn't you then just sit down so that your but was resting on your calves? That's basically what she's doing. I thought most people could do that even if it's not that comfortable for some?

butt

not but

anytime anyone wants to use that frog-in-gradually-boiling-water sheeple cliche they should just refer to this habit instead, it is infinitely more relatable and thus scarier

I always sit like this so I can read on the train platform. Don't care if anyone thinks I look dumb.

I hope you mean the outdoor El platforms and not the subway b/c blargh, subway floors!

the positioning of her feet is what's throwing me off.

I am trying to sit on my calves and I keep falling over

gimme prizza (crüt), Thursday, 5 April 2012 15:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

also my knees hate me now

I do this all the time on the sofa. And I have terrible circulation, so I get super-plus double-bad pins and needles death.

it's the worst

Often, I'll snooze in such a way that my legs both fall asleep. I won't know that until I try to stand up and I find myself on the floor, face down.

fka snush (remy bean), Thursday, 5 April 2012 16:45 (2 years ago) Permalink

once I woke up to someone slapping me repeatedly in the face. it was my own hand.

my arm had gotten wrapped behind my head which cut the circulation off so completely my hand had gone totally numb and started thrashing around. was prolly about to go necrotic.

My mother did this once except that she fell over and BROKE BOTH HER LEGS :/

JESUS GAH

and yet you still sit on yr legs :)

diamanda ram dass (Edward III), Thursday, 5 April 2012 17:51 (2 years ago) Permalink

One worse than the other but I know both were pretty messed up. She just toppled over and landed on top of herself.

wolf kabob (ENBB), Thursday, 5 April 2012 17:52 (2 years ago) Permalink

I can't stop!

wolf kabob (ENBB), Thursday, 5 April 2012 17:52 (2 years ago) Permalink

Do you guys also do the hopeless limp-running around the sofa to try to wake your sleeping leg up? IT HURTS, BUT IT'S THE ONLY WAY.

emil.y, Thursday, 5 April 2012 18:02 (2 years ago) Permalink

E, your story is horrifying. I've blacked out from standing up too quickly (especially at the gym after working out), but I've always had a few seconds of 'ooh, I'm going to fall' before actually falling.

fka snush (remy bean), Thursday, 5 April 2012 18:03 (2 years ago) Permalink

and then hobble around the house groaning like someone's just slashed my achilles tendon
