Sometimes I laugh at really weird things. These laughter fits take me by surprise, especially when I’m punchy from exhaustion or lack of sleep.
This week at work has been grueling, since 5 people quit and the rest of us are having to make up the slack. In fact, I was so exhausted I decided to stay home from work today and just do nothing. I needed sleep, and slept most of the day. I feel like this was good for my body and mind, so I don’t feel guilty about playing “hooky.”
Yesterday I was cleaning a house and saw a bathroom scale covered in faux “fur.” It was a dingier color than the one pictured above, but looked a lot like that one otherwise.
I wasn’t in a good mood yesterday. I was irritable, snappish and exhausted. But that furry scale sent me into fits of uncontrollable laughter, so much that I was doubled over and my stomach hurt. It was so unexpected! I couldn’t stop, and for about an hour later, even thinking about that bathroom scale got me started all over again.
It was just so unexpected. I haven’t seen a scale like that since the ’70s and even then I thought they were ridiculous. This one looked like it actually was from the ’70s, because the “fur” was so faded and knotty looking.
