Weight Right Here

Perhaps the most annoying thing about my jury duty yesterday was having to deal with security. Yes, you can xray my backpack, I'll take off my watch, turn off my phone and hand you my coat. Oh, you wanted my belt, too? Now that's a problem. You see, I've lost about 18 pounds on my diet and since I hope to lose another 18 pounds, I've thought "why should I buy new clothes simply to have to turn around and buy yet more clothes?"

The answer occurred to me right about the time my belt buckle got into a spat with the metal detector. I found myself standing there trying to maintain my dignity while holding up my pants lest they fall to my ankles in front of a crowd of strangers.
