Elevator Shoes



I got an hour-long "pre-op" exam the other day, which started with the usual weigh-in, height measurement and blood/pressure checks.elevator shoes.jpg


"Take your shoes off," said the nurse, ready to record my height.


"5' 5'"


That can't be right, I responded. I've ALWAYS been 5' 6 1/2'


"Ok, but you better get elevator shoes. 5'5"," the nurse said.


I got thinking on the drive home, how my 4'11 Mom lost at least 4 inches in height during her late '70s to late '80s.


If I live that long, I'll probably have other things to worry about than elevator shoes.
