Thanks to a bit of dieting (not any more) and a lot of running, I've been losing weight. A few of you have been kind enough to notice. Here's the data:
But that's not what I had in mind when I started writing this post. Several years ago, a new admin assistant started at my work, she used association to remember people's names when first introduced to us all. I found out a few of them much later. One person was "Joe Bloggs* - sensible shoes". My association was bulging pockets. The reason was, perhaps disappointingly, that I always had a fat wallet. Not generally because of having much money in it (often none due to poor ATM visit management), but due to a complete lack of weeding of cards, receipts, foreign currency and the like.
Anyway, I finally did something about it with a little help from a Groupon offer.
I don't want to sound like an advert for Big Skinny, but this is life-changing stuff. Now I can worry that I've lost my wallet instead of worrying about the structural integrity of my pockets!
* Not his actual name. Another disappointment to add to the tally in this post.
