Daily Prompt:  Teachable Moment

You have to learn a new skill. Do you prefer to read about it, watch someone else do it, hear someone describe it, or try it yourself?

My wonderful blogger friend  told me about a wonderful new exercise machine!

Vibration Machine

Her description was so wonderful that I went ahead and ordered it.   And now I have  a Total Body Vibration Machine that looks like a bathroom scale.   All you do is plug it in and you are good to go.  Simple, right?


I need new skills to master this gadget which is supposed to increase circulation, decrease weight, cure arthritis, take the place of a full one hour work out in ten minutes, and all you do is stand on it, lie on it, or sit on it.  Magic!

The machine came with no real instructions – well maybe a few – and there is no manual – just a page with minimal text and some pictures of a lady standing on the gadget, lying on it or sitting on it.  She looks fairly serene.


So my first plan of action was to read the captions.   Hurrah!  Now I can turn the thing on and off.  I also know how to stand, sit and lie on it.


There is something there about programming timing but I don’t understand the lingo and all the little lines to the buttons don’t make sense either.


I decided to TRY IT MYSELF!

I stood on it.

I turned it on.

It was on lowest speed (01).

And my eyes started vibrating!

The rest of me was jouncing too.

But have you ever tried to focus your eyes when they are vibrating?

I lasted one minute.

Suggested timing is ten minutes.

Today I will try for two minutes.  Forget lying on it or sitting on it.

Hurrah – I am learning a new skill – how to exercise your eyes!

BTW – THANK YOU CINDY! All kidding aside,  I think I am going to love this little gadget.
