I was reading Yvonne's blog at http://yvonne-writingmylifeaway.blogspot.com She was writing about how she thought she was shrinking. It's funny, go check it out.
So, her post reminded me of my daughter Sandy, who also thought she was shrinking. She came over one day and looked at her sister, Christine, and said, "You look taller than me." They have always been the exact same height. Christine said, "I couldn't be." They decided to measure their respective heights. Low and behold, Christine was a half inch taller.
Sandy was beside herself. "I'm Shrinking," she yelled. "How in hell can I be shrinking? I'm only 42!" We didn't know. It did seem strange. But after a few days it turned out that Sandy wasn't shrinking, Christine had grown a half inch. This seemed strange too. She is 38, not exactly the time for a growth spurt.
I then went to get my passport or something and found out I was 5 foot 3! I have always been 5 foot 2 and 1/2. So I had grown half an inch also. Now, Christine and I live in the same house, so this must account for it.
I told Yvonne that maybe aliens came and got us at night and experimented on us. Maybe they put thingys in our legs that make us taller. Or maybe there is a radiation leak nearby and we will turn into some kind of mutant X-Women. We don't know. But whatever the reason, Sandy is still pissed off.
This is her with a birthday cake we made with shrinking barbie dolls.
