Yesterday, my neighbour Toni went to Ronda hospital, Spain, to have a regular check-up of herself and the baby boy within her.
(While there, she had a word with reception to find out why my Neurologist had not made a recent appointment for me. Last night Toni gave me a paper with a date and time on it for mid November. So my pretty young Neurologist IS still talking to me after I missed visiting her in July !)
Toni also told me that everything is great with her and the baby. The boy is now weighing 1 kilogram. 2 months to go !
After Toni left my apartment I had a sudden thought ! How in the dickens do they know the weight of the baby ? I mean, a lot of things are easy to weigh ……..
…….. unless you are a blonde then things become difficult such as a maze ……..
…… or a kilo of sugar that weighs 144g …..
To weigh a giraffe is easy. Man holds giraffe ……..
……. stands on scales ……
……. which don’t lie ……
…… and do not stand on it like this …..
……. or this ……
……. or this …..
Man asks giraffe to read the weight as the man can’t see the scales ……
The giraffe climbs off the man. Records the weight of the man and subtracts that weight from the man plus the giraffe so obtaining the weight of the giraffe. “What a clever giraffe !” says the horse …….
……. and the dog !
My problem is that Toni’s baby is in an almost sealed container. How does one weigh an item in an almost sealed container ?
The doctors don’t know her true weight as she is getting heavier. Her breasts are growing, laden with milkshakes.
There are optional extras in with the baby such as fluids and the cord, etc.
I reckon that the Spanish doctors are miners. They use specialist equipment ……
…….. lower themselves down gently …….
……. scramble along the passage …….
……. open the door …….
……. and with the scales they brought with them they go in and weigh the baby !
Easy, isn’t it ! One kilogram exactly !
I must get a life !
