I don't know what possessed me to do it, but I stepped on my scale WITH my freakishly heavy vacuum cleaner in my hand and yep...the scale said 236!!! My starting weight was 235. Holy Toledo, I've lost my vac!! I've lost my vac! I've lost my vac! Hey world!!! I've lost a Kirby Vacuum cleaner!!! :carrot::carrot::carrot:

It does make you smile, doesn't it? I lost an ostrich egg last week. That just cracks me up. Pun definitely intended! We'll have to insert "kirby vac" on the list!
