yesterday i went to blockbuster to pick up a movie.
while i was at the counter, the clerk (guy) asked me, “have you always been that tall?”
huh? wha? i eyed him curiously, not quite knowing what to say. yes? no? maybe?
well, actually, yes… see, my mom had a really tough time giving birth. she’s currently in the guinness book of world records for giving birth to a 6 foot tall newborn. 🙂 AND ACTUALLY, now that you mention it, i used to be about 7 inches taller, but just recently had surgery to have about half of each of my calves removed, which brings me down to my present height.
ok, i know he was trying to find the right segue into a conversation about height, and so i’ll give him a break. plus it had me chuckling to myself for quite awhile after i left the store. haha!
(incidentally, i am 6 feet tall, and was wearing boots that made me taller. the reason he asked is because his sister was 6 foot 3.5. now that’s tall!)
