I am a short person. Not little people short but petit people short. Edith Ann short. I have a foot rest at work even though my chair is on the lowest setting and frankly I find this annoying. So I was interested when someone told me that I might wish to look into sitting on an exercise ball. Naturally I can only do this at home as I don’t think this would be good in the lab.
Out I went to find the right size ball and blew it up and blew it up and blew it up.
Then I sat on it. My feet were flat on the floor. Yay!
Alas there was one side effect.
Bouncing. Yes, I said it. I like to bounce and bounce. My husband thinks it is funny. I wish I had a handle on the ball to hop around the house.
Then I decided to use my new friend to sew. Umm, do you know a sew machine can bounce when you press down hard on the pedal to say, I don’t know, keep from rolling to the side? Well it does. It also causes the needle to break. I got better after 2 needles. And I did finish the pajamas I was sewing.
Now I have to limit myself between the regular furniture and the ball as the bouncing can induce motion sickness after a while.
And I’m pretty sure the ball is stalking me.
