I lie about my height.
It’s true. Most people get shorter as they age. I have gotten taller. That’s because I lie. I got tired of saying that I am 5 feet and 6 and 3/4 inches tall. Besides 5 foot 7 just sounds taller.
When I was younger, I was considered tall. Now that I’m 42, I’m considered short. What happened? I figure I can use that extra 1/4 inch to appear taller.
So, I lie about my height.
