Part of the physical examination they did when I volunteered at the hospital included height. I used to be 5' 6 3/4 ". Then at school a few years ago, I was 5'6" even. It was hard for me to believe and I made her do it again. Still. This time I measured 5' 5". I don't feel shorter.
I was talking to the lady who volunteers on Wednesdays with me. She bumped into a table and broke a bone. I told her to stop running in the house, but I was just kidding. I know she wasn't running. Her bones aren't strong. This is scary.
