I took out my book and read while I pumped. Finally I decided to give it a go again. Lo and behold, I had actually overinflated it! I had to let some air out. So now it is done. Looks pretty good, nice and silver, a bit like "rover" on The Prisoner. I'm not up for using it just yet but perhaps soon. It came with a chart showing several exercises one can do with it, and of course I also bought a DVD, "On the ball". Came highly recommended. So perhaps in a little while I will slip into shorts and see what I can do.
Speaking of those shorts. Stretch investigated them earlier. They were fresh from the dryer but he still pawed at them and sniffed. Perhaps looking for trace evidence?
