Red Vine Posture

Seeing that it is after midnight, it would make sense that I would be getting ready for bed.

Somehow or other, I ended up eating a Red Vine a couple of minutes ago. After that, I knew I needed to wait a while before I could really brush my teeth. I'm pretty sure this is a main law of nature, but I'll try to explain it a bit better.

You know how when you eat certain things, like Red Vines, or anything artificially flavored and colored brightly, it's a bit pointless to brush your teeth right away? You have to wait for that stuff to dissolve on its own, or you will just be spitting out red or blue colored toothpaste.

Anyway, while waiting for it to dissolve I ate another Red Vine.

Then another.

And another.

I stopped at four because that is the recommended serving size.

So, here I am, waiting for the corn syrup, wheat flour, citric acid, artificial flavor and red 40 to make its way past my tongue...

This obviously looks like a good time to discuss posture.
I have decided to work on my posture. My sitting posture. But where does it start? Should I focus on keeping my shoulders back? Should I focus on a straight spine? Should I try to tighten my abs and put my shoulders back? I hope you are trying to figure this out as you read this. Is it bad for me to focus only on my shoulders and not on the rest of my back? I don't know. All I know is that I often find myself slumped over at my desk and when I'm driving, and that just seems silly.

I love red vine. Love it. Truly.
Going to walmart is bad because then I buy it, let Kent have a few pieces and then eat most of the bag by myself. Kent actually told me as I was walking back to the kitchen to get another vine that I should stop or else I would get sick and regret it. I didn't stop and I didn't get sick...and I didn't regret it.
I love red vine.

I think we should spend more time hanging out with Ashley....she seems to have the posture thing down, we could get some tips!
