... but each tip-toe I measure is a millimeter long, a very small length.
So far this pencil is one hundred sixty-seven millimeters long.
One hundred sixty-seven millimeters, you see, and the length is named for me.
It takes me a long time to measure anything. Thirty-two millimeters to a paper clip. Cigarettes may be one hundred millimeters long or that silly millimeter longer.    There are those who measure much quicker than I.
