Shrinkage

I had a physical Friday, and the nurse said I’m 5’6″. WTF? I’m 5’7.5″. Or so I’ve always thought, and there’s a mark on the pantry door frame dating from 2003 to prove it.

But when I checked my height myself, I came up with 5’6″ too.

People typically lose height after age 40, about a centimeter per decade. But an inch and a half by age 53? Yikes.
