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.
