About that wrist mnemonic…

This came up in class this week and none of us could quite remember it… The mnemonic device for remembering the eight carpal bones of the wrist is “Silly Lovers Try Positions That They Can’t Handle”. (Scaphoid, Lunate, Triquetrum, Pisiform, Trapezoid, Trapezium, Capitate, Hamate.)

Okay, so the sentence isn’t very well constructed, with a superfluous “that”, but if you remember the “that” you’ll be closer to remembering all the carpal bones.

Who says we don’t know how to have fun at Yoga Bodega?
