Where did this footprint come from?


It’s fun to visit with the other people standing in line to be weighed at WeightWatchers (alot more fun than when you actually get to the scale!) and I have one sure-fire way of getting a laugh from them.

You aren’t supposed to stand on the scale with bare feet.  I’m never sure if this is for my protection from someone else’s cooties or them from mine!  Anyway, since verrrrry few of us are interested in including the weight of our shoes, no matter how light, in our weighing-in weight, we remove our shoes.  Some bring a paper towel to put on the scale, but I bring something a little more permanent — one of Hubby’s handkerchieves.  And if I see that someone has noticed what I am using to stand on on the scale, I will tell them, “And he never notices when I put it back in his drawer.”

Of course, I don’t really put one I have used back in the drawer, but it is always fun to make someone laugh … in fact, I find a shared laugh a guaranteed day brightener.

Look for chances to share a laugh.  They are some of the best medicine around.

    Now you know why I try to be in front of you in the line at WW.

    Denny — Since you’ve been my BIL for 46 years, if you were going to die from my cooties, I’m pretty sure it would have happened by now. 🙂

  3. Linda says:

    I’m just glad it was a handkerchief that you stole from Hubby’s drawer. 🙂

  4. Cheryl says:

    Like that advice……..;)

  5. Vicki says:

    I just avoid the scale altogether! Been thinking of joining WW myself–the pants just keep getting tighter! Either they are shrinking or I am expanding!lol
    Sandra, do you plan to pass though LR this fall? Hope so–be sure to call us!

  6. Sandra says:

    You’re right, Linda. One of his socks wouldn’t have been nearly big enough to stand on. 🙂

    Cheryl — And you and I have certainly had our share of laughs together! 🙂

    Vicki — I highly recommend WW. Now if I could just lose the last 10 lbs. to become a lifer!

    I would love to see you and your fellow cowgirl, but I don’t think we can this time. It is going to be a very quick trip down and back. 😦

    Sharing laughs wherever you go…. Sounds like a very good goal!

  8. Sandra says:

    Beth — I’m sorry we aren’t neighbors. I have a feeling we would laugh alot. 🙂

  9. Hilary says:

    Ahh but would you have noticed if your hubby had borrowed your handkerchief for the usual reason and put it back in your WW bag?

    You’re a funny lady, Sandra. I suspect you and the folks around you have fun wherever you go.

  10. Sandra says:

    Hilary — I had to read your comment to Hubby because you always make him laugh! 🙂

    I don’t know if I am funny as much as I just look for funny wherever I can find it. 🙂
