Any parts of your own body you have trouble reaching?

I used to be able to reach my backside with ease when I was younger, but lately I've been having one Hell of a time trying to give myself the ol' friendly reach around.

I gotta tell ya...

There's actually been times I've thought of just givin' up, and not wiping after going, but to remain "civilized" ( ), I go the extra mile, strain my muscles, and have even felt a rib *POP* trying to do the "right thing".

I mean, isn't that what underwear is for?

&

Any parts of your own body you have trouble reaching?

THEEK!

I have trouble reaching my tonsils but only because I had them removed when I was 16...

One particular spot on my mid-back. I am extremely flexible and can touch my feet while bending forward - Knees straight, and with my palm to my toes.

No mature comment need be made. I know what I said.

I'm doing good, but I sometimes think of those bodybuilders whose biceps are so huge they can't even scratch their own noses

I've got a mosquito bite in the middle of my back that is driving me crazy but that's about it. If I got the the point that couldn't wipe my own ass I'd be seriously freaked out...

At least you got creative with the file extensions.

I was trying to keep this thread on-track while conveying just how many parts of my body I can reach.


*sigh* No good can come from this conversation....

Same as WhoGirl. Doubt I could bend that far though... I can touch my toes, but with my fingertips, never tried my palms...

Stretch your lower back and legs, then relax your shoulders while you bend forward and let gravity pull them down. Over time you can gain more flexibility that way.

Very impressive for a guy to be able to truly touch their feet without bending their knees...

16! Yikes...

Anyway, just took inventory.... I can safely reach all body parts... even got that small back area covered, though it's not easy getting there.

I had my tonsils and adnoids removed at that age, too.

It sucked because it took so long to heal. For me it was well over a month. That's the risk of doing it later in life. But, I had so many cases of Strep throat and other throat pains throught my life that it was necessary.

I should have had them removed much earlier, but the doctors wait until you have either five or six incidents of Strep to remove them. No doctor ever checked my past history well enough to catch the trend of infection until I was sixteen. I had four infections many years. Bastards.
But ever since then I haven't had one serious throat infection. Although three years later, my adnoids grew back and I had to have them removed again.

I've had some pretty funny sig candidates in the past that just fell to the wayside unnoticed.

Thanks for picking that one up!

ENJOY!

Tek!

I can reach everything, but some parts of my back I just about need to dislocate my shoulder to reach.

Looks like you'll have to start going in between the legs.
