Leave Turkey Neck to the Birds

When I’m not snapping the loose skin of my inner elbows or watching my upper arms jiggle in a sleeveless dress, you might find me anxiously scrutinizing my profile in my car’s rearview mirror. (Don’t worry — I pull over first.) Yes, Tech Neck — formerly known as Turkey-Wattle Syndrome — has struck. Its cause: Looking down all day long at that stupid screen that has taken over your life, doubling your chins and turning the skin on your neck …
