Mounting the Scale
Next I tried the "gingerly alight" approach. After tapping the scale once with my right foot, and using only the ball of my right foot, I placed it midway on the scale...oh so gently. I followed with the ball of my left foot and then slowly let both heels down until I was standing evenly. "243.2." Sonofa.....
I relayed this story to my BFF (remember, my best fat friend) and we laughed and laughed. It seems we both have our own little private superstitions about how to mount and dismount the scale for optimum results! (I know I blogged about it once before, but it's just so funny to me, and I keep on doing it.)
Let's face it. Some of us have developed some rather hilarious routines related to our bathroom scale.
Another friend told me today that might work for the old scales, but that the digital ones require you to hop on and get solid footing quickly. Who knew? All these decades of Scale Ballet techniques are hard to break! But I'll try.
Speaking of which, how many of us wake up, go pee, then rush to the scale immediately? The other day I got up, tinkled, went into the kitchen and had a couple of sips of water to wash down some medicine, THEN remembered the scale. I'll be darned if I'll get on the scale after a few sips of water...the process was RUINED, I tell ya! lol
Anyway, I just thought I'd share my scale thoughts. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one with funny scale superstitions, habits, and methods. I may be one of the few, however, who openly admits it.
