Downsizing and upsizing

 

Sir, – Responding to a letter from Patrick Judge (February 29th) about his height loss, Paul Griffin (March 2nd) reveals that he too is shrinking in size by a couple of inches, while his feet are growing larger. This revelation merely adds weight to “Delaney’s Postulate”, which advances this not-so-ridiculous notion: “What one loses in inches,one gains in feet.” – Yours, etc,

PAUL DELANEY,

Dalkey, Co Dublin.

Sir, – Cheer up, Paul Griffin. At least the days are getting longer. – Yours, etc,

KAY LEONARD,

Dublin 8.

Sir, – Paul Griffin should not worry about getting shorter or his feet getting longer. It’s just that his ankles are moving towards his knees. – Yours, etc,
