Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale

Boy can this “prompt” be used in many different ways!  

SCALE

The first thing that came to mind was my bathroom scale.  It is near Halloween so it’s appropriate that I bring something up that can be a very frightening experience for many of us.

Not only that, but check out the name of my scale.  If you are a fan of Steven King, you get it!

My seldom used bathroom scale!

Thinner indeed!

I felt sure that I would begin losing weight once I started using this scale to weigh myself, but obviously a misnamed product.

THE MONSTER IS SLEEPING!

Then there are “fish scales.”

Sometimes we are leaving actual “things” behind.  Things we paid for but of no real value.  The false importance we placed on the “thing” due to some great marketing campaign and the idea of keeping our economy viable.  Truth is, the more things we leave behind, the more we can actually start living again.  Many born past 1980 never got to live, they have been “consuming” since birth.
