Would you join me?

Has anyone heard of this before? A sales woman that used to frequent the funeral home called yesterday and stated that she has changed jobs and in the meantime she was doing "ear stapling". (First off I should state that this particular woman seems to have her stuff together, is poised, well educated....and so on.) I thought that I surely hadn't heard her right. She went ahead to tell me that a stainless steel "staple" is "stapled" into a specific pressure point (depending on your needs) of your ear. This is supposed to help with the following: stress relief, migranes, smoking cessation and weight loss. If your ear is staples for weight loss, on average a person will lose between 4 and 7 lbs a week. Of course, with everything, it doesn't work for everyone, but apparently has worked for many. The staple stays in for 5-6 weeks, as it becomes ineffective after this point, and is then removed. Sounds weird, but interesting.

Oh yeah, the really weird and out there part.......they do parties. You know, like home interior, tupperware, pampered chef, etc..... The hostess gets her ear stapled free. I am almost tempted to throw one. Would you come?

You know I'll be there. Do I have to bring my own stapler? Wait- if I already have a stapler- what do I need this chick for? I'll be right back...

How about doing mine while you are at it. I have a stapler sporting "Swingline S.F.-1 sharp point standard staples" The box contains 5,000 staples, 210 per strip. I could lose alot of weight with these.

Do you mind that I've invaded you and your circle of friends with all my comments? Would you mind if I put your blog in my list of links?

I would definitely come. Not sure if I would get stapled, but.... You know it sounds to me a bit like accupuncture. I did not used to believe in that stuff but you know what? You never know till you try. Could I just get paper clipped to try it out first?

No I don't mind. You guys are entertaining too.

If I book a party you are soooo invited. I will ask the staple lady about paper clips. Sounds like a good idea to me. More of a temporary fix. You know, I would hate to lose too much weight. :)
