Word of the week: skeleton

We spent quite a bit of time at NIA Dance White Belt Training last October in Wotton under Edge studying the skeleton.

And….it was fascinating!

Our trainer, Helen, brought the skeleton to life and I came away with some great creative ways of remembering different bones, i.e. ‘the 5 lumbar vertebrae are like bicycle handles’, ‘the ulna and radius are the only bones that spiral’ and ‘the pelvis, chest and head are our 3 main body weights’.

This image popped up on my Facebook page today, and I love it!  What a great way of illustrating names of bones…

Plus, I like the word skeleton.  Why?

  • most words that start with ‘sk’ are quite interesting.
  • it reminds me that it’s easy for us to take the skeleton for granted, it’s an amazing piece of machinery.  And well, without it, we’d be nothing more than ‘skin and guts’ 🙁
  • my son used to love watching comic villain ‘Skeletor’ on tele.

Are you looking after your skeleton?

So this is not scientific at all. But in a couple of hours there have been more than 2000 replies and overwhelmingly they say @RoryStewartUK won the #C4Debate https://t.co/BBXQeKSp5w

.@RoryStewartUK again absolutely kills the others by actually sounding as though he is fallible. Whether it is sincere or a performance it is working. @sajidjavid also sounds human by talking about getting things wrong as a dad #c4debate
