anatomy: rasceta

I have learned a new word. I’m excited about it, and I want to share it with you.

 

Ready?

 

It’s:

Rasceta: The lines on the back of your wrist

 

It’s pronounced a bit like “receipt-ah.”

The skin of the wrist and forearm is wired to have poor spatial acuity, but pretty darn good sensitivity to light touch. Translation: the rasceta want you to touch them with the very, very tips of your fingers, and with your tongue and lips.

 

That is all.
