How sad is it when I'm pretty sure the highlight of my week will be tomorrow when my new "fancy"1 glass digital scale arrives?

Spare me the lecture on shopping at Wal-Mart, I'm barely working (and therefore broke) and they had the cheapest ones and the largest selection of glass scales. You'll notice I was smart enough to just suck it up and pay the shipping rather than actually dare stepping foot inside a Wal-Mart. Largely since I'm rather sure doing so immediately lowers your IQ 5-10 points and I just can't take that kind of risk while I'm studying for the bar. Additionally, I'm rather sure if I did step foot into a Wal-Mart right now I'd end up committing some sort of intentional tort against an employee or a fellow shopper.

1Which is relative here (obviously being that I bought it at Wal-Mart), since:

  1. My current scale is my Mother's from before I was born (making it over 25 years old, probably closer to 30 years old)
  2. My current scale varies about 5 pounds on any given day
  3. I just do not think I can bring myself to stand on a Body-Fat calculating scale at this point in my life

Personally - I'd keep the scale. Those five pounds are crucial - and if it's five pounds more than my desired weight, I'd know it doesn't work anyway.

That's a pretty neat scale, I'd be excited too.
