O is for Occipital

Some of you may or may not know where your occipital is. It's the bone at the base of your skull that sits right on top of your vertebrae. The reason I chose this particular O word is because this particular bone frequently gives me grief and is frequently on my mind. You could say that my head is never quite screwed on straight . . . because of this bone. Sigh.

I did go to the chiropractor today though, so my head is screwed on straight at the moment. =)

I can see how this bone would always be at the back of your mind ...
Great post - enjoyed it :-)
All best, Karla

That's hilarious! It reminds me of a children's book that I still have, about Lucey McLocket, whose head was not screwed on just right!

Good word. I never knew I had one of these. I wonder if that is one of my problems.

Thanks for the post, Melissa. *raises forkful of carrot cake your direction* Here's hoping your head always stays screwed on.

Sorry for the cake tease. I shouldn't be eating it either since dinner will be soon...I just can't help myself.
Take care.

No, I did not know what the occipital is. Hope I don't have to remember this for a test!

Occipital is one bone I did know, so that's the first thing I've done right today! :)
