The Doctor’s

This morning my friend Helen went to the doctor’s. Seeing as it was the first time since her move from London, I went to, to translate her medical history. They measured her height and weight. Now Helen is a very tall girl, and standing on the scales made her even taller. The nurse is tiny. She was actually jumping up and down trying to get the bar horizontal across the top of Helen’s head.

Eventually she climbed up on the examining couch, and then it was easy. Helen is 1,78 metres (5ft 10″).
