I’m also not shrinking, or the guy was just making stuff up, the guy being the respiratory therapist who ran the tests on me. He measured me on the wall, and subtracted for my shoes, and said, You’re about 5’5 1/2″, and I was all, I’m not shrinking!

This came up today because of a Roger Ebert post where he talks about being shorter and how it’s like the first real marker of his mortality, and I so understand, because I’m not shrinking.

Anyway. He’s 5′ 5 1/2″, and I am, and there’s a list of people who were, or are, I’m sure.

I think maybe should have gone to summer school.

The photos are bribes, like candy at the dentist.
