I found the old scale that everyone claims is broken. It was stuffed into the closet with the forgotten Charmin, tossed aside like a worthless collection of springs and metal gears.
I pulled it out and dusted it off. Except for a crack in the plastic weight indicator pane there was no visible damage. I set it down gently on the floor and pressed on the top plate. The needle swung smoothly to the right and the returned to its original position centered on 0. Another more forceful push this time produced the same results.
So I did it... I stepped fully on the scale, holding my breath as if by restricting the amount of air in my lungs I may weigh less.
I now weigh 140 pounds! That's 10 pounds lighter than I weighed at the end of summer!
Now if only I could get my mirror and clothes to corroborate my amazing weight loss story.
Dickidoo is taking me out to dinner tonight. As you may recall our Anniversary plans were kind of put on hold after his accident and even though I told him it wasn't necessary, he feels he has to make it up to me.
With a lobster dinner!
Yeow! Its a good thing I lost those 10 extra pounds!
Ohhhhhhh! And guess what else I did?
I discovered eBay! And while I was browsing through the many different shops and auctions I bid for and won ... A BRAND NEW USED NIKON D70! It took me a couple of days to break the news to Dickidoo because while the camera came at a great bargain, I don't exactly have a spare $300 bucks just sitting around in my checking account. And a camera like that isn't something you can sneak into the house without anyone noticing... or wondering why we're eating hot dogs for the 7th night in a row...
Actually he took the news of my impulsive investment very well. We still have all the accessories from the broken D70 which were not compatible with Dickidoo's camera, and can finally use the zoom again.
'So that means I don't have to buy you the D200 now right?'
Its going to be fun taking both cameras out at the same time. I imagine there will be a sort of rivalry to see who is the better photographer. The Denver March Pow Wow is coming up and will probably be our first outing so be looking for a special Boobidoo vs. Dickidoo photo special around mid March. By the way, the Southern Oompas are driving out with their parents to join us there... My babies! WOO HOO! I can't wait!
Happy Valentines my friends. May Cupid sprinkle your love with romance and truffles!
Happy Birthday grand-oompa Cyrus! Today you turn the Big 3. Only 13 more years and you can drive! 15 more years and you can vote! and in 44 years you'll be the same age as me! Don't worry, I'll wait up for you!
