some important advice for when (cough) you come to sheffield to visit me.
the first thing you need to know is The Wade. this is the move you'll have to adopt when walking uphill in uni. it's hard to describe on here, but it involves long strides and leaning forward as far as possible. sometimes it helps to use your arms in a sort of "air pull".
then there's The Waddle. this is the move you'll have to adopt when walking downhill at uni. you have to get a perfect balance of body weight not to far forward or you might have a jack a la jack and jill moment and not to far back or you're legs will run away from underneath you. short little steps are needed and it helps to clench your bum a bit too.
so, when you see me back in the distinctly flat maidenhead, don't be too alarmed if my walk resembles either the BFG or pingu. be assured it's just the waddle and the wade.
