Not all numbers are happy numbers — like numbers that tell one how much one weighs.  However, as much we don’t like pounds, pounds are important.  Even if we don’t like to know how much we personally weigh, we do need to know how much other things — like our hamburgers — weigh.  We couldn’t order a Quarter Pound with Cheese if there were no pounds or no scales on which to throw a slab of meat.

These scales are hanging on the wall of Root Down — a restaurant in the Highlands in Denver, CO.

You know I’ve always said, “If you’re going to weigh yourself, it may as well be on a pink scale.” Okay, I’ve never said that, but I think I will from now on.

As far as this hamburger?  I don’t know how much it weighs because it wasn’t a quarter pounder with cheese, and I didn’t have a scale in my purse.  (Note to self:  start packing a food scale.)  On a side note, this cheeseburger was delicious and went straight to my thighs.  I ordered it from another restaurant in the Highlands — Highland Tap and Burger.
