An MRR is difficult to spot in the wild as they have developed excellent camouflage skills. Further study is needed. Some might say (correctly) that the following are yoga positions. But I suggest they are also positions formed by the illusive MRR.
Downward Facing Dog - While walking the dog, the man has his head down reading a romance on a mobile device.
Warrior Pose - The most confident MRR pose. He will fight for his right to read his romance.
Boat Pose - A pose often adopted by a new MRR. He will be found alone on a boat in the middle of a lake. There may be fishing gear for further camouflage.
Half Lord of the Fishes Pose - A pose for the bolder MRR. He has now progressed to reading the romance on a riverbank, but the fishing rod remains present.
Sitting Half Spinal Twist - Man twisting to check if he has been spotted reading a romance.
Eagle Pose - A white-haired MMR high in a tree, reading a romance. This is a rare sighting as most white-haired MMRs do not climb high into trees. A ladder may be a sign that one is in the vicinity.
Half Moon Pose - This MRR is also a plumber. Enough said.
Lord of the Dance Pose - Spotted mostly in Ireland, this MRR reads his romance while constantly tapping his feet.
Reclining Hero Pose - A pose for the more confident MRR. Normally found on beaches or poolside.
Supported Headstand - An MRR who reads with his romance on a table (hiding the cover) with his head supported by his hands. From a distance he appears to be studying. Younger MRRs may adopt this pose.
Go forth and observe. MRRs are everywhere, but are easily startled. Good luck.
