Fun Friday Epaulets

Fun Friday Epaulets

Keeping the shoulders level and square can be challenging. Here is an idea that might help.

Imagine wearing a costume with epaulets on the shoulders. Epaulets are, according to lexico.com: “An ornamental shoulder piece on an item of clothing, especially on the coat or jacket of a military uniform.” And the origin of the word will sound familiar: “Late 18th century from French épaulette, diminutive of épaule ‘shoulder’, from Latin spatula in the late Latin sense ‘shoulder blade’.” See the Link of the Day below for an example of epaulets.

Thinking about these shoulder pieces, and imagining how their weight would feel can help keep the upper body level and square.
