Anne LaMott, author, recently wrote: “About to have a physical. I’m healthy, with all the symptoms of A.G.E. Syndrome. I hate that they insist on weighing you. So I have developed a system to ascertain my true weight. The number on their scale, minus 2 pounds for clothes, 1 pound for coffee, etc., 1 pound for air bloat, 1 pound for hair.”
It reminded me of a poster near the scale I once saw in Dr. Bliss’s office where they weigh you in. It was Garfield the Cat standing on a scale and yelling at the dial, “Liar! Liar!”
This is much like getting my Driver’s License renewed recently. They ask me how much I weigh and I determined that if I was within 25-40 pounds of my actual weight someone (like the cops) could still recognize me from my photo.
