(*definition from http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/bamboozle)
Why am I giving you the definition of bamboozle?
Because it is going to make one great story for the night!
Tonight I went to the chiropractor and went back to do some of the exercises that I have been doing. We were in a car accident a few months back and have been seeing the chiropractor a few times a week ever since – so we’ve had a lot of time together.
Needless to say we have a great relationship with him at this point – we have the best chiropractor – EVER! (Message me if you want his name if you are in the area. J )
But I am getting away from my story…
So I sat down on the first machine to work my back, and I’m pushing, and pushing, and nothing is happening.
I try again. Still nothing.
By now he’s wondering what is going on so he came back to check on me. I tell him what the problem is and he sits down, gives it a try, still nothing.
And then he realized what was going on – at least he was smarter than me at this point.
I was on the wrong machine…or at least trying to do the wrong exercise! LOL!!!
I was on the ab machine (which I also have been doing), and of course it won’t go backwards.
I promptly cracked up at myself.
He thought for a second that I was playing a trick on him (bamboozled him, you know?!) – yeah, that’s it! I should have gone with that, but I fessed up…just a really un-smart moment (kind of like that word!).
But no, I didn’t bamboozle the chiropractor. I do want to talk about Bamboosa though! www.bamboosa.com
Bambooza offers so many different things from men’s and women’s clothing, a baby line (BambooBaby), socks, items for your home, bamboo powder soapbars, and more! It is definitely worth your time to take a look at the items that they offer.
Since I have been on a bit of a buying restriction – self-imposed, I haven’t had the chance to try any of Bamboosa’s items out, but I have a list of shirts that I want. I do own one bamboo t-shirt that I absolutely love, and the hubby has a few that he really likes too. They are soft and super comfortable.
All of the fabric and products that Bamboosa sells are made in the USA, they use Certified Organic bamboo for the clothing and products, and they do not use child labor or sweatshops.
Bamboosa also offers the following on their site - http://www.bamboosa.com/engage.php?PID=38
“Recycle, swap or donate:
Instead of filling up the landfill, find places to recycle, swap or donate the things that won't go in your blue bins”
They include a list of items and tell you where you can donate, swap, or recycle items that aren’t necessarily traditional items that you normally would put in your recycling bins.
There really are so many great products on their site that you should definitely take a look at.
