Shrink, Shrank, Shrunk!

According to the doctor, I'm shrinking.  Whoa! What? Ok, so he didn't actually say I was shrinking.  But you know how much I have a flare for "D-rama" in my life!  What happened was, I went to the doctor today, while there, he decides to  measure my height.  "You don't have to, I'm 4'11 and if I'm having a "Big Hair" kind of day, I can make it to 5'0." I said confidently.  He smiled and motioned for me to stand up anyway.  "You're 4'10." He said smugly.  "4'10??? Since when? I've been 4'11 forever!" Suddenly my life was flashing before my eyes. Yes I know, I know, it's only one inch but when you've been a certain height for practically all of your life finding out that you've suddenly, mysteriously shrank, well, that kind of wreaks havoc with your mind!  "Am I shrinking??? Am I dying???" I practically yelped these questions out.  The doctor growing more and more amused or annoyed I'm sure, just dismissed my babble and assured me that I was not shrinking and was not dying. At least, not yet. "We all die eventually." he said with a grin. Then he patted my arm and assured me that everything was fine.  "Put your shoes back on."

My shoes.  My shoes! I quickly remembered how anytime my height was measured, I was always wearing shoes.  Whew! What a relief. The Incredible Shrinking Woman is not taking possession over my body after all.

That was my Thursday, how was yours?

You're so silly Yvonne hahaha.

I actually wouldn't mind shrinking an inch now I'm sooooo massive haha.

Yvonne - That is funny. Yes, shoes make a difference.
For some reason my daughter Christine and I have grown a half inch. My other daughter Sandy is furious. First she thought she was shrinking, but it turned out we grew! We still don't know why. I was always 5 foot 2 1/2, now I am 5foot 3. We live in the same house. Maybe aliens came one night while we were sleeping.

It's very reassuring when your doctor tells you that "we all die eventually." That's A+ bedside manner!

My wife's family is all really short, and like you, they all KNOW their height. I'm sorry for the near heart attack. You know, that kind of stress will kill you ;)

hahahhaa!! Yvonne!!! i am 5'2 and without my heels i am no different from 4'11 i tell ya. Most guys think im wee and short and tiny and then they look at my enraged face and then they shut up. LOL!!! said...

Yvonne, you're a giant next to me! No wonder we get along so well. I'm only 5 ft tall when I wear 4 inch heels, and I hate wearing heels. Plus, I have big hair, but it sticks out not up.

Belle - I agree, aliens came in the middle of the night!
