ASK I: “Someone Has ‘Cankles’?”

Q: Someone has “cankles”?

A: You have cankles.

Your ankles are your calves all the time.

Don’t draw a trumpet.

Graze.

Instead of a sheath, build boots.

Stretch a shaft.

Don’t wear your lower legs and feet unadorned.

Always optically taper a needle.

If you legs are flesh, wear your bare legs.

Don’t fret when it is time to stand.

Sure, your legs are not straight.

Turn slightly with a hand on your back leg.

Stand with your toes separated, look slimmer!
