I'd Rather Be Dense

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..

Noses, ears, feet, and BUTTS! good thing that doesn't happen to dogs. Only thing that keeps growing on us is our hearts.

Hooo boy. Your Muzzer is still more than three inches taller than muzzer was the last time she LET THEM tell her the results. She says, "Mark it down and keep your mouth shut, doc or I'll tell your mother on you!"

She is getting wider too...someplaces.

Moco said...

I don't know about all of this. Grammie was always short and not you are telling me that she is getting shorter. Pretty soon we will be eye to eye.

Hi Koobie! Our mom has the same problem! She used to be 5'2", but now she's only 5'1 1/2". At this rate, it won't be long before she's as wide as she is tall! (Our mom didn't think that was funny)! She thought the part about your feet getting bigger was just because as she gets older, she wants comfortable shoes instead of the ones she used to cram her feet into! We hope you have a great weekend!

HMMMMMMM>>> so that's what we have to look forward to??? We terriers already have long snoots...can ya imagine how long they're gonna get?? Mumsie hasn't had one of those bone den SIT E tests yet...she figures that since she didn't break anything the last time she fell down the basement stairs they can't be too brittle yet...very scientific, huh???

Yes, Koobie...I and going on a date with a cat...he's sweet, respectful and doesn't tell me I have a large caboose...we'll see how it goes!

Scruffy sez to bring your red blanket and a crock pot full of smoked kielbassi and kraut if ya could??? And fill up the back of ur red kar with um beer. You still ok drivin' a convertible in November? What if it snows?? OH, better have an umbrella handy!


Rudy said...

Yeah, Mom says she's sure she used to be 5 foot 8 but now they tell her she's an inch shorter. How did that happen??? As for the nose, she doesn't even want to think about that. I mean, her hair can cover her ears, but a schnozz is another story!


Molly and Taffy said...

Hi Koobuss

Our hooman is vey worried now. She is imaging herself with a nose like Pinocchio, ears like a grown up Elf and feet like Gulliver. Not a pretty sight!!

Hi Koobie,
