In my line of work, I get to meet many people from many walks of life. Some people are quite fascinating. I learn a lot from them.
The other day, I met a doctor of Chiropractic Medicine, I.E., "Chiropractor". He was quite interesting. He told me all about his work..how he manipulates one's spine to work out kinks, cure sore necks, and adjust one's posture. He showed me diagrams of the spine and neck and showed me how he uses his hands to align one's back. Fascinating!
That night, after dinner, I took my lovely 13 month old doggy out for a walk. The weather was mild and lots of people were out with their kids, walking their dogs, or even just sitting on their front porches. My doggy loves an audience, and with so many people out, he just HAD to show them his chiropractic skills!!
In a split second, he went from walking calmly beside me, to whipping around behind me. He tried to pull my arm out of its socket!! He then whipped around in front of me...spinning me 180 degrees. Once I got my bearings, I realized that he had the leash wrapped around his snout..so when I bent down to help him, he jumped back resulting in propelling me forward with my arm outstretched...At this point, I was sure that he had indeed dislocated my shoulder. Fortunately, though, it wasn't my shoulder that was dislocated, but he had managed to sprain my finger. Dozens of people looked on, but because I had a forced smile on my face, they couldn't see that I was in distress!!
In the evening, after a long hard day, I sat staring at this ball of fluff at my feet. I pondered about his career as a chiropractor and thanked my lucky stars that he didn't want to be a yoga instructor!!!!
