Hitting the Scales

The new tile in the bathroom is AWESOME.  I love, love, love it!  Only thing is, the scale seems to be reading a couple of pounds higher than normal.  I kept giving it opportunities to self correct and it just wouldn't.  I figured it must be sitting cattywampus due to some minimal tile unevenness.  Yeah, that must be it...yes, I can blame the apparent weight gain on Dave (he did the amazing installation, after all).  After I told him my theory, Dave claimed he could move the scale around in the bathroom to certain tiles and it was "accurate".  Well, I moved that sucker all around the room and, nope, it was still giving the same readout.  Dang!  I had to get to the bottom of this.  Tonight I was all excited as I weighed myself in the bathroom and noted the readout.  I picked that darn scale up and took it to the living room on the wood floor.  Same readout.  I'm starting to have a bad feeling here.  Well, gee, the wood could be uneven, too, right?  So I go to the kitchen where there's trusty 20 plus year old linoleum.  SAME readout.  I give the refrigerator a leer...yes, something in there was certainly to blame.

P.S. No, I don't think I'm fat...please don't get on me for that.
And, yes, I know this mermaid appears to be armless, 
but when I first sketched her they were there, 
and then I did her hair, and, well, you know how it goes....
