Don't worry, it's not what you think! I've destroyed another pedometer. I go through these things in a matter of months. Does anyone else have this problem? Maybe because it stays attached to me all day, and I have a tendency to (accidentally) hurt myself at least once a day. I guess that would make all my poor pedometers hapless bystanders? If I don't lose them, I break them. My poor pedometer, you really do mean so much to me. That's why I carry you with me always, until you cheap plastic body breaks! Or I leave you in the bathroom, on top of the toilet paper dispenser...Why would you steal a pedometer?! Nobody ever turns them in! I always check for weeks, but not only do the employees have no idea what the heck a pedometer is, once I describe it, there's never a match. My latest victim apparently couldn't stand up to the pressure of being clipped to my belt. It figures that the smallest plastic piece on it would break, huh? Right where the clip attached to be actual pedometer, dang it! Now, I can't get an accurate count, so it might as well be broke. Wait!
I just got an idea! The batteries are still good for at least nine more months, so I'll see if they fit in the one I kept that, I think, the batteries died. Glad I kept it! I couldn't bear to throw it out. I think I have at least three non-functioning ones right now. I guess that's the price of fitness. Until I get another pedometer, I'll try my battery donation idea. Who wants to take a guess until the next one is lost or broken?
