Me in Stones

My scale decided that it was no longer an American. On Thursday morning of last week it began giving me my weight in stones. For no reason, mind you, it just stopped reading pounds. I figured that maybe it was just going to be British for one day, so I ignored it. Come Sunday, it was still reading my weight back to me in stones. I tried to kick it like I do most British to get them to work, but it still preferred stones. How’s a gal supposed to know if she’s getting skinnier when she has no idea how heavy 10 stones are? Is this because they were using pounds already for money? How big are these stones?

  1. 14 pounds equals one stone. It is all relative – if the stones are going down you’re losing weight. On the other hand I have been told I have big stones.

  2. your scale’s going all madonna in adopting an accent. maybe it’s a sign that you need to move to the uk.

    a handy trick I discovered for lots of conversions is google’s calculator function.

    get the syntax right and she’ll whisper sweet converted nothings in your ear.

  4. Modonna? I’m going to sell my scale on Ebay.

    14 Pounds = 1 Stone? I kinda like my weight in stones better. Maybe my scale is trying to make me feel better.
