Sit Up Straight!

By Beth Beutler
1     "Sit up straight, please," Mrs. Hogan said to her students as she walked through the aisles of the classroom.
 
2     Jacob sighed and straightened in his chair. Mrs. Hogan said that nearly every day. In his opinion, it was more comfortable to slouch.
 
3     Mrs. Hogan returned to the front of the classroom. "Why is it important not to slouch?" she asked.
 
4     Marie raised her hand. (Marie always raised her hand. She was the best student in the class.)
 
5     "Yes, Marie?" Mrs. Hogan asked.
 
6     "It will help us avoid back problems in the future," Marie answered.
 
7     "That's a good answer, Marie. Yes, sitting, standing, and walking straight do help us avoid back and neck problems. What else?"
 
8     John raised his hand.
