Today I found out I am 5'4" tall.
Why is this significant? Because my whole adult life I thought I was 5'3.75". I would always tell people 5'4" because it was a nice even number, and (aside from flip-flops in the summertime) I tend to wear shoes with an added lift to them.
I was living a lie, until now.
Honestly, I can't remember the last time I had my height checked. I find that nurses are always quick to have me stand on a scale (ugh!) but rarely measure how tall I am. Today I went with my friend, Amanda, to her foot doctor appointment. After the nurse measured her (she's a towering 5'7"), I asked if she would measure me.
Once with shoes on (5'5") and once with shoes off (5'4"). I had her double-check that last one. She assured me I was a true 5'4" tall.
Amanda is my witness.
This must be what it feels like to win the lottery.
