One night last week when my mom joined some of her old (?) high school classmates for their monthly Girls' Night Out dinner, one of them remarked that she was getting shorter, but her feet were getting bigger. My mom immediately thought, "So that's where it goes!"
Then the other day she went to get a bone density test. That is something humans do to determine how thick their bones are, which is fine with me because I like thick bones, especially thick bones with lots of meat on them that I can chew on for hours. Anyway, my mom (who is shrinking almost as fast as the stock market and is down to five feet, three and a half inches tall) learned a couple dismal facts there while the test was being done.
Such as, as you age your body shrinks except for three body parts that keep growing until you die. They are your feet, your ears, and your nose. Yikes!! She was expecting the doctor to come in and say, “I have bad news for you. You are getting shorter and your nose is getting bigger!” What a nightmare!!!
So, here she sits, staring at the computer and getting shorter by the minute. Glad I don't have to worry about that. I'm already short. Hehehe..
