I still play Casio (with keys that light up!) for the kids at KCPC, and I’m still profoundly amused by them. Pastor Eugene asked them this past Sunday how they would finish the sentence, “God is…” One girl says “good”. A guy then says, one upping her, “great”. Then some kid says, “clean”. Clean? The first thing that comes to your mind when you think of what God is is clean? Hilarious.

Anyway, I noticed something interesting. Some of the girls get insanely tall in 6th grade. I don’t know what their parents are feeding them, but yeah, they get really tall. And a common thing they do is slouch. I guess because they’re self-conscious about their height? Because they do tower over the other kids. But yeah, that happens with some of the taller girls.

So I was thinking about it, and I actually think something similar happened with me. Not being conscious with height, but just physical appearance in general. I think that’s why I slouch. I say this because when I do make an effort to stand up straight, it feels strange, not just physically, but psychologically. I don’t know how to explain it, but it’s something like, I’m not good looking enough to be walking like this. I dunno if that makes any sense at all, but yeah, there’s something psychological going on and I think that’s why I started slouching.
