What I Learned at the Doctor

Just call me stretch. Yesterday I went to the doctor for my annual physical. First things first is they measure your height. I don't know why they brother I know I am 5'6 and 3/4 and call my self 5'7" just for the added confidence.

Okay Mr. H, 5 feet 8 inches.

"What? Are you sure?"

"Yes, 5 feet 8 inches."

Wow...this really changes things for me. First my height to weight ratio is more in line so that is as good as loosing a few pounds. I might give a shot at growing a few more inches so the ratio will be perfect.

Perhaps I will eventually grow into my head.

I may take a stab at summer basketball leagues.

I can now stand on the second row at the Christmas parade.

I can go confidently into the Big and Tall stores.

I bet I'll start earing more money and the chicks will come flocking soon too.

I'm 5'9" and some... but call myself 5'9". If you're going to keep growing, we could dance together!

This reminded me of my favorite quote ever from Cheers.

Norm walked in to the bar.

Cliff: Hey Norm, what are you up to?
Norm: My ideal weight if I were 7 feet tall.

Classic.....

Wedgie, you are so funny! You give me hope! Now I have a shot at getting above 5'4". Maybe I will grow up too. Have already been growing out, and am ready for THAT to stop.
