I had a physical at work a few weeks ago (to comply with requirements to get a health stipend) and after I was measured the woman told me I was a little over 6'5" so she would list me as 6'5". What??!! I haven't been 6'5" since middle school! The shrinking has started! I hear all the time that most people shrink over time when their spine compacts. My mom, who just turned 84, used to top out at 5'9" and she's way under that now.
When I was younger people would ask if I was still growing. I told them no, because my pants were still long enough. The other day I bought a pair of jeans at Annie's that were long enough - the tag said they had a 35 1/2" inseam and I almost didn't try them on. They fit great! I usually wear a 36" and look for a 37" inseam if possible. I guess I AM shrinking! By the time I'm 84 maybe I'll be around 6'0" and will have a bigger pool of men to choose from.
