Where To Put the Arms?


When Hubbs and I cuddle, one of us inevitably ends up with lost circulation in the arm. It's true: the two bottom arms have no other place to be when people cuddle face to face. It looks easy in the movies, sure, but when you look closely you realize that the actors are playing to the camera and in actuality, their positions are untenably awkward as well, especially if sustained for more than a minute at a time.

So is there a solution to the cuddle dilemma? I would like to think that there is, but so far we have not managed to figure it out. A hole in the mattress is no solution (sorry XKCD), especially since I think it would feel equally awkward to have that arm hanging down the hole. We're cool with all the other cuddling positions (spooning, one on their back and the other on their side) but this one perplexes me.

As a cuddling fan, I would appreciate suggestions and tips. :) Merci.

What I Wish....


I wish....

...that work weeks were only 3 days long, and weekends, 4 days long.

...that people got paid twice as much as they do now to make up for short weeks.

...that I could get back to my HK 2003 weight without any diet or exercise required.

...that LCD projectors would be built into computer towers rather than existing as a separate entity.

...that other vegetables could taste as good as french fries.

...that undesired body hair (e.g. legs) could be permanently removed with just one shave.

...that I had a new car and no payments waiting for me in my parking stall.

...that stiletto heels were comfortable enough to wear teaching all day.

...that marking would mark itself.

...that women could naturally conceive and birth babies after the age of 40 without complication.

...that I could be on a beach right now with a lavaflow drink in my hand.

...that it could be autumn for 6 months of the year and summer for the other 6. I don't need winter or spring.

...that Hong Kong was only a 4 hour flight away.

...that I had more time on my hands.

Don't you wish that too?
