a new definition (lyn)

Get to weight watchers.  Step on the scale. I warn Robin that I know I've gained this week.  She looks at the scale reading, and then smiles (she always smiles), and says sweetly, "only a smidge."  Before I can feel too good about Robin's word choice, she says, "Only 1.2 pounds."   I thought I knew what the word smidge means, but obviously I've been very wrong.
