That girl and I have been together long enough that we are starting to think alike. I have not yet got her thinking that allowing 40 pounds of housecat to sleep in bed with us is a good idea and she has not quite convinced me that I need to check the “sell by” date on whatever food I stuff in my mouth; but we are getting closer.
Here is the latest. We have both been trying to maintain a fairly constant weight. We have experienced mixed success on this. I am not talking about a great deal of weight gain or loss, mind you. We tend to suffer fluctuations of less than five pounds. An extended holiday or a week of inactivity is enough to drive the scale up. A bit more activity and watching what we eat drives the scale readings down.
The other day, that girl came home with a brand new bathroom scale.
“Are we going to try and lose a bit more weight,” I asked.
“That’s what I figured. And you’re thinking a new scale might show that we weigh less, right?”
That girl laughed. “Yes.”
“Good thinking! I had the very same thought!
After I unpackaged the new scale, I placed it alongside the old scale in the master bath. I stood on the old scale and noted my weight. I then stood on the new scale.
A full two pounds less on the new scale. Significant weight loss in mere seconds!
I think that girl could market this stuff.
