Some ladies have a little handbag problem. For others it’s shoes. For me, it’s hardware stores. I find myself drawn in, eyes caressing the rows of drill bits, shelving, plastic boxes, gardening tools…the fireplace supplies, the various paints and painting tools, the kitchen accoutrements. I have from time to time been banned by my husband from shopping at the hardware store in Bedford Village because, well, it’s just too tempting for me.
And wouldn’t you know it, I have found a way to meld my obsession with hardware stores into my obsession with….what else….YOGA.
In this video, I take a seemingly innocuous Cosco Stepladder and turn it into a rack of back cracking and arm and shoulde articulation. This is lots of fun though. For anyone with a stepladder, and who is too short-torsoed to make use of one of those metal folding chair things that they have in yoga studios, I highly recommend doing it the Bored Housewife with a Hardware Store Problem Way.
