They just installed a weighbridge, at a cost of $77,000,
at our local ‘Transfer Station’ [i.e., ‘the dump‘].
I, as ever, was curious as to what its capabilities were.
I, not known to be bashful, asked whether they could weigh me.
No problem. We are all good friends over there,
I a near weekly pest.
The first reading came in at 150 pounds.
That wasn’t right.
They needed to re-balance it and ‘zero’ it.
Next reading at 170 pounds was probably spot on.
I had my Sony a7 II with a heavy zoom. That was probably 3 pounds.
Then my clothes, belt, shoes and wallet.
Reading at home, 90 minutes earlier had been 165 pounds.
So, it was cool.
