shoulders. I have no idea why other than the word kept coming back to me. When I think of shoulders, I think of my grandma. Her shoulders were not sloping or narrow. They were broad and square. She had a perfect figure, an hourglass, which I did not inherit. I remember seeing pictures of her in tailored suits with padded shoulders. I don't have narrow shoulders either but they are not square like my grandma's. I have one that is lower than the other. My spine is twisted like a rotini at the base. I never knew I had a screwed-up spine until I went to a chiropractor a few years ago for hip pain. He showed me the spiral in an x-ray of my lower back. Could that whorl be the reason one leg of my pants was always shorter or why when I was in labor, the epidural only worked on one side of my body? Physical therapists have assured me that I don't have a discrepancy in leg length, so I figure it must have something to do with that corkscrew.
