The saga of my big, blue ball….
As a Snippets' side note....some four weeks ago, in yet another attempt to ward off the fat fairy, I spent $20 on an exercise ball.
A big, blue exercise ball to use instead of my traditional office chair.
I had been hearing and reading about the virtues of using one:
You can flatten your abs;
Strengthen your core muscles to help your lower back;
Tighten your booty muscles;
Firm up your thighs (by clinging to it for dear life so as not to roll off!); and
Other only-can-be-good-for-me things.
I sat on it all day – every day – and I loved it.....
Until last Friday.....when I had to work late in order to get a filing off to court.
Halfway into revising the 68+ page document....I heard what I thought was my tummy gurgling.....actually it was more like a little farty sound.....phhiiifff.
Then I started sinking....
In the haste of correcting this document – I left one of my desk drawers open..
A sharp-edged desk drawer...which consequently poked a hole in my big, blue ball.
My big blue ball is now in a landfill.
I will be buying another one....
only after putting protective bumpers on my drawers....I’m thinking.
