I've been waiting for weeks now to get to the pool to do a weight check done so I could order my bp/w. Yes, old man winter is in retreat here despite the fact we're supposed to get 2-3" of snow today. (50* by Sunday, so who cares?)
After it was all said and done, even I was suspicious of the final number but Monday morning I called DSS anyway.
I gave him my final weight tally. There was a pause.
"That's off the the charts."
I envisioned fingers twirling circles over temples at the other end.
Sensing danger, I quickly responded, "Well, I wanted to try to do this according to Hoyle."
"Was that according to Hoyle or according to Boyle?"
I felt better anyway.
I quickly related the setup I used to dive the treacherous mermaid infested pool waters after the infamous "weight check" debacle. (I did not go into the painful story of how I was sucker punched by one of the mermaids and subsequently lost my reg.)
Reality re-entered the picture. Tobin ran the numbers in his head and ran 'em again. And ran 'em again.
He made his suggestion.
My bp/w is on its way.
