Rulers and Loosers

Ok. Yesterday, well, let's write off yesterday! I did not have a very good day - at first I thought of posting a sorrow and sympathy post about what happened at work...but, then I decided against that. I am hoping my arguments are considered and perhaps this terrible situation will be solved in a timely and appropriate manner. OK, enough of that!

So, then what? What should I write about? Hmmmmmmm.....

A science experiment! Ya!

OK...quick, run to the junk drawer and pull out your straight ruler, a pencil, a piece of paper and scissors.

I'll wait - this is a cool experiment!

OK. Welcome back!

Onto this experiment in human reaction.

Now, carefully measure out 10 inches or 25.40 centimeters.

Cut the paper so that you have a strip that is 10 inches or 25.40 centimeters long.


Now, hold it up to your waist line, pointing out.

Got it?

Ok, now, this is the cool part, most people have the exact same reaction to what happens next.

Wait for it.....

That 10 inches or 25.40 centimeters, represents how much MY waist line has decreased in 15 weeks....10 inches people.....10 friggin inches!!

Did you gasp a little? Even mutter, "holy crap"?!?!!?!?

Yep, that is the usual reaction - and I LOVE it!!!!

Ya me!!!

I rule as a looser!!!!
