Dusting off the scale...literally

Occasionally, I jump ease on the scale while thinking thoughts of light things like butterflies, feathers or whispers.  I have weird rituals that I do before attempting to get on the scale.  Here is my list:
  1. Empty my bladder
  2. Strip down to my unders
  3. Dust off the scale
These are all ways, that I feel, make that scale number a bit lower.  I am sure a full bladder, clothing, and those dust particles and loose hairs lying on the scale will add at least 10 pounds.

So why do I torture myself with this device called the scale? The scale is my appliance tester.  If my weight stays the same or is lower, then I know that my dryer is working properly and not shrinking my clothes.  If my weight goes up, then I know that perhaps the dryer may need to be serviced or that the scale is broken.
