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.
