Don’t Forget IWYLD

by

That’s right, TR Fans.

Today is International Weigh Your Lemur Day, so get out your graph paper and tally sheets, line ‘em up and set ‘em down. If you use a digital scale be sure to cover it properly so that the inevitable little lemur leaks don’t damage the expensive electronics.

I can’t remember how many (supposedly) waterproof scales I’ve had to return over the years. It always ends in an argument with the salesperson, right up until I drop the bombshell:

“Look. This scale can’t even sustain a bladder full of lemur piss. I’ll show you. Wait here for a minute.”

Now, I don’t own a lemur, nor do I have a bladder of lemur piss to produce at a moment’s notice, but you’d be surprised at how fast you can get a damaged waterproof scale replaced with that simple browbeating argument.

Remember this but use it only when circumstances absolutely demand it, and you’re welcome.

    Again, exactly why I subscribe to TR. I can never keep my holidays straight.
    But what I really need? A Post It reminding me not to drink coffee while clicking the link to International Weigh Your Lemur Day.

    thelit– We might have to compile a calendar just to keep track of them all. In the meanwhile, tie-dye a couple white blouses with coffee and you’ll never have to worry about accidental stains again.
