everybody has a six pack
me: So you have a six pack, right? Like six pack abs...
11:11 AM Mark Perini: hahahahahahah
Mark Perini: lol hahaha
me: so it's not clearly visible
11:13 AM Mark Perini: yeah that's something a lot of people have they can feel the muscle under but it's not so visable
11:14 AM me: if I turn just the right way in front of the mirror, I can even see shades of an 8 pack...anyway, I'm working on my issue with spacial awareness in writing and grounding the reader to the physical aspect of being inside the character's head...
11:16 AM Mark Perini: lol I think that's better than most people's packs...Do you have a specific example?
me: I'm just wondering what does it feels like to sit down...so if you have that visible 6 pack, then things don't scrunch up and bulge out?
11:19 AM Mark Perini: hahahah I mean you still have the skin on top of the six pack unless you sit perfectly straight up and down with no forward slumping than your still going to get some scrunching because the skins elastic so if you bend over at all it's gonna scrunch
11:20 AM that's why a lot of times if people are sitting and shirtless they are leaning back or have really straight posture...
me: If only that worked for all of us....
11:21 AM I'm always aware of that bulge, like I'm throwing my arm across my stomach or something
it's hard to get inside the head of someone who doesn't feel like that
11:23 AM Mark Perini: yeah I suppose it's different I've had a six pack since middle school...but everyone has body issues if it's not your stomach or you fix that then it will be something else...
I know plenty of gorgeous models that have body issues just like everyone else...
11:25 AM me: I think I need to go for a run now...
11:26 AM but seriously, we should start a saying..."Everybody has a six pack underneath." It's not what's on the surface that matters...lol
literally So what do you think? Could "Everybody has a six pack" be the next big t-shirt slogan?
