A View from the Stacks: Stina Reads Me the Riot Act
In response to my Day in the Life photo spoof, Stina McClintock emailed me her critique:
"The mark of a fine parody is attention to detail. For example, in the recent South Park episode concerning “snukes” the references to 24 were spot on, right down to the ring tone that they used for the cell phones. I say all this because I wonder “Why is it so hard to put on some heels and stand on a step stool? Do it right people!” Actually, I am more concerned that people do not believe this is how I shelve. Maybe I will make a Quicktime video and upload it to YouTube so everyone can see my work in action. The leg lift is necessary to balance out the heel height. If I kept both feet flat, there is no telling what might happen."
Unfortunately, I do not own a pair of stiletto heels but, even if I did, I wouldn't have been able to wear them for the photo shoot. I was holding the stacks for dear life because my bad knee couldn't support my ... ah ... the 60 pounds I've gained since
- aging metabolism;
- living in a state where potatoes are a main course for breakfast, lunch and dinner;
- all of the above.
I'm just glad Stina didn't ask me why I wasn't wearing a manssiere!
Now, about that video Stina. [JH]
