Writer's Butt

Not to be confused with Writer's Block. Writer's Butt occurs when writer sits still for extended periods of time, sometimes hours on end without standing. The only movement: eyes, eyelids, hands, fingers, the occassional thinker's frown or pursed lips, and sometimes, when very excited over scene: toe wiggling.

Writer's Butt can cause stiffness, achiness, and weakness (weakness evident upon climbing stairs with laundry basket, jogging to mailbox, and dancing to Mambo Italiano while making dinner).

Ack, that's what's wrong with me! I've been writing papers for days and couldn't figure out what was wrong when taking the puppy to the dog park last night. It's Writer's Butt.

Thanks Dr. String Bean, you've saved the day with your helpful self diagnosis tips! ;)
