The Second Day of Inline Christmas

Let’s do this again…

T’was the Second Day of Inline Christmas when here I sat, sad and broken hearted, tried to finish but only started, a whole new rhyming scheme, that has nothing to do with the theme that had been…so I set right to work winding it down, cause the best day of the year is coming to town, the light at the end of the tunnel I see, and it fills my skating and rhyming heart with mirth and glee. Today we thought it would be rather nice, to spend Christmas Eve skating on ice, so off to the Promenade we went, and a good couple of hours on the ice we spent. And just when it couldn’t get better it seemed, we decided it’d be grand to get ice cream! Italian gelato is still dairy based, with 70% less fat but no less the taste. T’was a yummy treat what more can I say, it certainly was a great Christmas Eve day!

This seems a little extreme...you sure I couldn't just get coal instead?

Unlike inversion tables, this patented apparatus gently relieves lower- and mid-back pain and stiffness without requiring you to be suspended upside down. As you lean forward in the fabric hammock from a kneeling position, Rover takes over. Actually, the device uses your body weight to create a strong, steady traction that relieves pressure on the spine and helps loosen tense back muscles. The optional prostate massage unit is not something I feel the need to discuss here. Don’t ask, don’t tell still applies in some quarters. Butt seriously, for my friends that have severe lower back issues could really benefit from this thing. According to the marketing materials, using the apparatus for just 5-10 minutes a day can relieve back discomfort without medication. In clinical trials at The University of Western Australia, the device helped reduce patients’ back pain and stiffness while improving their quality of life and mobility after only three weeks of use. The unit’s 1″ tubular steel frame supports up to 350 lbs. yet it is lightweight and compact for convenient transport and storage. Assembles easily. 48″ L x 30″ W x 24″ H.

I'd also like a matching set of briefs and a Snuggie to complete the ensemble.

These leg wraps inflate and deflate to improve circulation, soothe sore muscles, and reduce swelling in your lower extremities. Similar to hospital compression boots that stimulate circulation in sedentary patients, the leg wraps have six airbags that wrap around the entire leg and inflate and deflate to help blood vessels expand and contract. The compression intervals stimulate circulation in the thighs, hamstrings, calves, and feet and help facilitate blood flow back to the heart. Too bad they don’t make pants that do that, eh? Ho, ho, ho (heh, heh, heh) The corded remote allows you to select from three levels of intensity and choose from seven programs that pinpoint different areas and at varying intervals. Adjustable Velcro closures ensure optimal fit for all sizes. Plugs into AC. 33 1/2″ H x 30 1/4″ W x 3/4″ D.
