Things That Moved In With My Mom's Boyfriend:: Part One

My mom's new man is a bit of a pack rat. Most of his stuff is in storage, but he brought enough things with him that I figured I could get at least half a dozen blog posts out of it. Thus begins a new series: Things That Moved In With My Mom's Boyfriend.

We begin the series with the ThighMaster. The ThighMaster is a workout device that was popular in the early nineties and was endorsed by actress extraordinaire, Suzanne Somers. You can watch the commercial here.

If you use it regularly, supposedly it tones the thighs. I may or may not scientifically test this in the coming weeks. We'll see how motivated I am.

Here is Jay kindly demonstrating the ThighMaster:

Work those thighs!

In my mom's boyfriends defense, he says he didn't plan on bringing the ThighMaster and that his son threw it in the moving truck at the last minute. I suppose we'll give him the benefit of the doubt.

I don't know, Tammie: Jay and the ThighMaster™... almost porn. Slippery slope, and all that. Thank god my husband will be back in town soon! Everything looks like porn, now that I think of it.

mari: i know!! honestly, ive tried to use the thing but everytime i do i find myself blushing. it really feels nasty and x rated.

im glad your hubs will be home soon. he's been gone a long time. :)

I am almost 100% positive that I owned a Thighmaster or off-brand equivalent of it at one point. One can never be sure, my mind is sometimes a murky place.

Glad to see you're coping well with the moving in situation. I hope it continues to go nicely.

Oh my god. No. Just... no.

(I can't wait for more in this series!)

I like that you asked him why he brought the thigh master!

I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one that saw an X-rated factor with the Thigh Master.

I think that Jay needs to be the new spokes model! This is good stuff!
