When her husband was transferred to Canada, she was delighted to find that at her new doctor's office, she only weighed in at 85...she figured all the effort and stress of the move had helped her slim down,until her doctor pointed out that her weight was measured here in kilograms. He told her that if she had transferred to England, she'd only weigh 13.35 (stone that is).
