ACUPUNCTURE MOXA & ME
Today, I had an appointment with an acupuncture specialist. Well not exactly... As it turns out, there are a ton of benefits that go along with babysitting.
1. Its off the books. Therefore, I can continue being an illegal alein (although im not illegal... just working illegally)
2. All of my friends are under 5 or over 30- therefore, have stable, well paying jobs, that I can sometimes reap the benefits of.. or can run around and play hide-and-go-seek with.
3. There are various gift that I receive by knowing these families. ie: my full size bed came from one family, free; my new sewing machine, a gift; tons of dinner invites; v.i.p. tickets for basketball games; and now, today, we add to the list: acupuncture.
SO> back to the topic. yes, acupuncture and moxa are forms of eastern medicine/practice. no, they arent used for voodoo or satanist ceremony- well maybe they are- i'm no expert. But the point is, i got a few needles stuck in me today, at various crucial points of my hand, releasing bad spirits and ghosts and goblins, and then- i am healthy for the latter of my life! hehe, no but in all seriousness, im a fan of non-pharmaceutical, mind-over-matter, herbal, alternative forms of medicine. Just like my grandma-ma's and great grandparents' involvement with Christian Science.
