Are those flames shooting outta her back?

Since I've gotten my bionic back (actually, long before that, too) I've been trying to find a comfortable chair to use for work. I make a point to get up and walk around often, and work standing up when I can but since I work on a computer, I have to sit down. Besides, standing is one of the things that's hard for me to do. I've got to have a good chair, people!

My first chair was so-so. It wasn't horrible but it wasn't very good, either. I squirmed every minute or so and never could get comfortable. But other people around me had chairs that were much worse so I didn't complain much. As my back situation got worse, I started trying more and more chairs in an attempt to get comfortable. I even tried one of those exercise ball thingys. My abs were getting in shape but my spine was on fire. 

The company I work for takes great care of us, so the body mechanic lady came up and measured this and that and later, brought me a fancy schmancy robo-chair. It went up and down, side to side, it had lumbar support and armrests that went up and down, a back that would go forwards and backwards and it did everything but give me a massage! It might give me one but I haven't figured out how to turn it on just yet.

I didn't realize that a degree in chair-ology was necessary but let me tell ya, I've got a PhD now. My chair is so awesome I think I'll live in it for the rest of my life. Instead of driving my cool car, I'll just roll around in my chair. I'll learn to mow my yard while I sit in my chair. I'll make my chair fit in my car. I am one with my chair. I love it. I don't have to worry about my back bursting into flames any more. Now all I have to figure out is if I can sit in my awesome chair when I take a shower, and when I sleep and when I go bungee jumping and..........

  1. i'm glad you got the chair of wonder from your magical body mechanic lady! i switched to an exercise ball a couple months ago and it has helped tremendously, but i can't flop backwards or i'll slam straight to the ground.
