So there I was at the breakfast table, just trying to make friendly conversation with my wife, Anita.
“What the hell is that weird contraption in the bathroom?” I asked.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about?”
“On the floor.”
“Your wet towel?” she guessed. “Your dirty underwear?”
“Under my wet towel and beneath my dirty underwear,” I said. “It’s some kind of weird step-stool, except it’s only a half-inch tall.”
“There’s no step-stool in the bathroom.”
“It’s flashes red numbers when you stand on it. At first I thought it might be showing my weight, but the number was waaaaaaay too high.”
“Oh,” she said. “I’m not 100% positive, but I’m pretty much 100% percent positive that you’re talking the scale.”
“Would it have been completely unreasonable for you to just tell me that was our new extra-low step-stool?”
“Yeah, I think so...”
“Now that I know I weigh more than I thought I did, I’m gonna have to do something about it.”
“Well, good luck with that.”
