Just throwing this one out for fun So....I got that phrase in my head earlier today about someone weighing X pounds,(kilos or whatever) "soaking wet"...So,as it got me wondering what's that all about,I thought I'd ask MyLotters where did it come from? Are there people out there in the habit of weighing themselves before they've reached for a towel getting out of the bath,shower,or swimming pool? Are You in the habit of doing this? Or Do you know someone who does? Share!

Thats funny I really have never thought about it before. I have heard this all my life, such an such wouldn't even weigh even a hundred pounds if they were soaking wet. I have never weighed myself while I was wet but I was just wondering are they saying that people weigh more wet are what.

Hi ShepherdSpy well I always wondered how that expression' came' about unless someone did weight selves without toweling off. I guess someone did that a zillion years back and it got handed' down over the years. My dad often said when irritated,oh for Pete's sake etc etc and so on.Now I always wondered why that term meant someone was irritated about something. and who the heck was Pete.
