I figure all this fun with my friend "Rawlings" (remember Tom Hanks in Castaway naming "Wilson"?)... has to count as exercise of some sort.
Standing on a basketball is a great balance / core strengthener, right? As is sitting on it. Bouncing or throwing one is upper body. And you have to get some credit for the attitude boost to be doing something for someone else.
But, confession time: my brother saw that Amazon would ship most things (including sporting goods) to an APO address, so I did the cost/benefit analysis and ordered him one directly shipped from them. Turned out even with the purchase price of the basketball, it ended up being less than twice my normal box POSTAGE, never mind what I put in the box.
So... while he doesn't know it yet, his basketball is on its way, and "Rawlings" will stay with me and I'll keep working on the flattening thing. Wonder if it will be flat enough by the time he comes home?
