When an old friend phoned last night and I asked how she was, she told me she had been diagnosed with Weaver's Bottom. I had never heard of such a thing, which is apparently a bursa on the bum that weavers and other folk get, it seems, from sitting on hard chairs for too long. It got me to thinking how I have heard of Housemaid's Knee, Policeman's Heel and Hatter's Madness. I wondered if you could think of any other such afflictions. I myself suffer from chronic Nursery Teacher's Shoulder caused by sitting on those tiny nursery chairs for years and years. This weaver's bottom should be a warning to people who spend a lot of time on TES to ensure they are sitting on nice soft cushions all the time!
