So I checked the mail. It was the usual. A pile of bills, magazines, and catalogs. As I was watching an episode of The Firm (great show, by the way) I was flipping through a catalog. I was just perusing and checking it out. Not really looking for anything specific. I just wanted to see what they had. Then I stumbled upon their home goods section. They had bathroom scales. I was intrigued. They had scales that projected your weight on the wall. They had scales that talk. It makes you wonder, do the scales whisper the weight? Or does it say it in a judging tone? Does it yell it? I mean, it’s bad enough that people feel the need to weigh, but to have that number announced? I don’t think so. I think I would feel condemned.
So here’s the question, would you have talking scales? Or any scales for that matter?
