In which I see the extra weight

Went to Home Depot today to buy salt for our water softener system.

It's not one of my favorite jobs because the bags weigh 40 lbs each and are awkward to carry, despite the fact they have a handle.

I piled three into the cart and pushed it to the checkout. As I'm making my way there, mentally cursing our stupid hard water, I realize:

The three bags are the equivalent of what I used to carry around on my skeleton every day. Talk about putting it into perspective.

Next time you see a 40-lb bag of anything, pick it up. Then multiply by three. Oof.
