Even though the old adage of size doesn’t matter …. it certainly does
if you are my age, you may feel more comfortable with feet/inches or pints/fluid ounces
… I try to visualise litres or square metres … but just doesn’t seem to work for me
We seem to switch between measurements still in certain subjects and the most bizarre one we still use inches is for a mans body part !
According to the NHS site the average is 5-7inches
(in centimetres 13-18 centimetres)
so why don’t men use centimetres especially as its larger number … and we know what they are like when trying to describe size … especially when caught a fish … it’s always bigger ?
following up on a recent poll on twitter showed out of 212 votes 81% voted that they measure in inches !
whether it’s inches, centimetres, horses hands … size doesn’t matter .. it’s what we do that’s important
Until the next time
don’t measure your success on someone else’s tape measures
