A position with your knees at your chest, arms crossed, and head down. Usually signifies fear or vulnerability. Programmers usually "go fetal" when they realize exactly how much coding they have to do before a deadline.

I just figured out where my husband is.

On Christmas morning the light went on telling me someone was at the door. When I opened it there was a familiar face of a pretty woman. I was trying to place her when she reached out and handed me a bunch of papers. I looked past her and saw my husband waiting at the curb behind the wheel of his Porsche. I finally placed the woman. She was our daughter's kindergarten "teacher's aid" and she had just served me with a petition and summons for dissolution of my marriage.

I closed the door and went back to bed. I've been here in a fetal position ever since.

Our daughter is with my mother. That's where he sent her when I had my aneurysm and now he is suing for custody.

Merry Christmas!
