So this just happened to me. It might have had something to do with karma or something like that.
A couple of
weeks ago I was in the clean up mood. Just throwing things away, Marie
Kondo-ing the place. And offcourse I also threw away our scale.
I thought the thing was broken. It showed crazy numbers. It changed a couple of kilograms every time I went on it to check my weight.
I just threw the damn thing out of the house.
left us without a scale.
Although I am a believer that you can better check your body improvements in the mirror, not everybody in the household shared this believe with me.
Happy Wife Happy Life
So I had to
go to the store to get a new scale.
Because my work is located next to a mall, it is fairly easy for me to go to the store after my working hours.
Easy said, easy done.
over and I go outside and walk to the store.
It is a little bit rainy outside, but nothing to bad.
I go to
this store that might have scales.
While I am walking in the store I forget what I come to do. So I pick up some other things, some eye drops and something to drink.
In the line before the cashregister my mind starts working again.
I am here
for a scale. Yes, I remember. A new scale.
So I get out of line and start walking through the store again. And yes, there is a scale.
A Scale with features
A beauty for that matter. It works with Bluetooth, so I can check my progress. (Well, I don’t hope progress. I hope the number is going to decline)
It has an BMI tracker. Yeah. Ok that is possible. It Is an easy formula. And I know my BMI is too high.
It even has
a body fat meter in it. Wow, that is not really possible now is it.
No it is not.
There is no
screaming function on it, for when I am too heavy. “Get off me you fat ass.”
Now that would be a nice feature.
Taking the scale home
So I buy
this beauty of a scale and go outside.
Sure by now it is raining very hard.
With the scale under my arm I start running to a place to hide.
I decide to
go In the grocery store.
Maybe the rain is over when I get out.
I put some fruit, milk and bread in my basket and walk to the cash register.
register is semi-automatic. I have to scan all my items.
Most of the time it is a little bit faster than a normal register.
When I am done I take my groceries and walk outside.
The rain is over. And I go to the bus stop so I can take my bus home.
When I see the bus stop. I also see my bus not stop. It is already leaving.
Ah well, the weather cleared up. And I still got to walk a little bit to the bus stop.
A couple of
minutes of waiting and the bus comes. I get in and thankfully I can actually take a seat.
So karma might be working out for me right now.
As I doze off, the bus is driving along.
Twenty minutes or so later it is time for me to get off the bus.
When I stand up I take my backpack and my bag of groceries.
I take a look around and there is nothing left to take.
The doors open and it is raining outside again. Well I got to get out and get in the rain.
So that is
what I do.
I look behind me one more time to see if I didn’t leave anything behind.
Although it feels I have forgotten something, there is nothing there.
The cold raindrops on my head must have activated my brain again.
I have forgotten the scale.
read that part about me scanning my own items at the grocery store?
That is where I put it on the floor and where I have left it.
In a rush I go to the other side of the road and wait 10 minutes for the bus to return.
I doze off
again in the bus.
Yeah it is like a little rocking chair, so I can always fall asleep on a bus.
At the bus stop I get out and walk straight to the grocery store.
There is no scale to be seen.
I asked a very helpful lady if she has found the scale.
And rather to my surprise she says yes and gives me the scale back.
‘But wait, who doesn’t want this amazing scale with all these cool extra features?’
