My husband is Gru?

So this morning we had a moment. It was a bit of a Despicable Me - the little boy and Gru scene. Remember when the little boy, right at the beginning of the film drops his ice cream and Gru makes him a balloon toy? The little boy is so happy at this unexpected gift! Wow! How cool! And then the moment. Gru pulls out a pin and POP!! goes the balloon toy. 

Yes. It was like that. Here's what happened.

I forgot to weigh myself yesterday, so I hopped on the scale this morning. Weight exactly the same, fine, no problem. Body Fat... WHAT???  It's dropped, again! ?? huh? Really? I mean, Yay, but... Really? Is this for real? Could I actually be seeing progress in this area? Finally?? Really? (yes, this is my lovely balloon toy).  I step out and say to Bill, "I just weighed, [you men reading this know that this is the exact moment Bill stopped listening and went into damage control mode] and it says my weight is the same but my body fat is at 23.9%!"  "Honey, don't worry about it. You know the scale doesn't tell the whole story."


There went my balloon. Remember, that's about 4% lower than it was 2 weeks ago.

It took me a few minutes to realize that he actually didn't hear what I said, that he was really just trying to comfort me, LOL. So being a wise, mature woman who deeply loves her husband and appreciates him, I of course pointed out to him his faux-pas and proceeded to razz him about it the rest of the morning. :-)  It's what I do.
