He compliments my posture and inquires as to how I achieved it.
Was it something my parents pounded into me?
I took writing courses, right?
How about study?
I am aware that he believes this to be a simple inquiry.
With an easy resolution.
He is not ready for the reality.
He is unwilling to learn
That I experienced early puberty and used to slump in my seat to conceal it my rapid growth.
He doesn’t want to know that I used to try to make myself as invisible to someone
Who could always locate me as possible by collapsing my frame as much as possible.
He is unwilling to hear.
Describing the steps I took to train my shoulders to expand up and sit at their actual breadth.
He doesn’t want to be told that developing a spine is uncomfortable.
