Dear Claw Hand,


There is this strange thing going on with my hands... but only when I place it on my hip. Ya know, the pageant pose? Oh, you don't know what I mean by pageant pose? Think knee popped, the front hand on the hip, the back hand on the seam, S-curved body, big smile. That is the pageant pose. Well overtime my hand on hip has turned into claw on hip. And as I look through all my pictures I am starting to realize this is not a new thing. It was a slow transition from simple claw to almost a lobster claw.

1. Summer 2011: My nephews baptism. 
Slightly broken wrist with the pinky straying away from the rest.
2. January 2012: Miss America. 
Pinky still straying but so is the index finger.
3. March 2012: Miss Idaho Orientation and MIOT. 
Fingers all separated, apparently they had a fight. Pinky starting to bend.
4. March 2012 (a week later): BYU vs Utah Baseball Game. 
Fingers all separated and bent... ready to attack.

Do you see what I have become!? A full fledged lobster hand! How did this happen? How can I fix it? It must be fixed. And fast. Think pretty hands Deidre, pretty hands! Fingers straight and close together... Don't fall victim to the claw!

My thing in photos? I always have awkward posture with them.

I went through this phase in middle school where apparently I thought I was tall and would slouch to be everyone else's "height." Problem? I am 5'3 full grown one was shorter than me.
