As The Doctor Talks

What I learned at my doctor's appointment, aka my 3.5 hour lunch:

1. Apparently, at age 26 I have grown an inch. I'm not quite sure how this happened since a) I'm 26, b) I drink a lot of coffee and I used to NOT drink coffee for fear of stunting my growth and c) I'm well past puberty. I am wondering if maybe this is payback from rounding down on my height ever since I had a crush on someone slightly shorter than me. But 9 sounds so much shorter than 10 and I tilt my head usually in my perfected Olsen pose so I figured I appeared shorter anyway. But nope, the nurse announced me as an inch taller. Oh and I was wearing flip flops so no added height there.

2. My recent Old Man Sickness (wheezing, coughing, sore throat, congestion, and losing of voice) is most likely due to satanic levels of pollen in the air. I am now the proud owner of Allegra (although I've taken it before and I swear it didn't work) and get this: nasal spray AND an inhaler.

3. So these past few weeks have just been allergies and not something contagious to others?! I could have been making out with people but instead have wasted three weeks of my early, er mid, twenties trying to keep others healthy. oh wait, I'm the tall girl with an inhaler. The tall girl with an inhaler who is about to buy a bassoon. I am a lost cause on the nerd-o-meter.

4. Yeah right, even when wheezing and being tall and talking about my almost new bassoon I'm still awesome. Stay tuned for my "Summer Anthems of 2006" Blog!


P.S. The inhaler is just for immediate relief and breathing. It's not something for always a la Thomas J.

I grew two inches between my junior year of college and my first year in grad school, despite drinking epic amounts of coffee. I'm beginning to think the coffee thing was a myth . . .

I never pictured you tall. Always assumed you were short from looking at your picture. Interesting indeed.
