Meh, such are the things you have to put up with when you're short lol. Tonight, my sister just called me the banished 8th dwarf from the Snow White tale. I must admit it's funny though lol


yay for short people :) it's not so bad cos at least I don't bang my head on low ceilings and there's less leg to wax therefore less pain to endure *grin*

It can also make for very good excuses ;)


Now why would you be embarrassed about being short. I am by no means short (not tall either) and a guy and your middle sis towers over me when she has her heeled boots on and I never minded.


Good things about being short: plenty of headroom when standing on a bus, plenty of legroom in cars and planes, more options when playing hide-and-seek, don't have to stretch too far to pick stuff up off the floor, you get out of things like moving furniture around :-)

Bad things about being short: overhead hand-holds on buses are uncomfortably high, can't reach high shelves in the kitchen or supermarket, more of you gets wet when splashed by a car driving through a puddle, you get volunteered for messy jobs in cramped spaces.

Things that could go either way: always being in the front for group photos, people thinking you're a teenager even when you're well into your 20's, blending into a crowd of 10-14 year-olds.



I didn't know about that.


Poor ickle maltagirly *grin*





If it makes you feel better, bro and I constantly tease mum, who is all of 5"2. Problem is, bro is much taller than I am, so I get teased as well! Mum's solution is simple - "You may tease all you wish, but I'm still the boss. Now, go and do and hurry up". Mean!


What do you mean, "all of 5.2"??? Eh??? Five foot two is a perfectly respectable height I'll have you know. So there.

I love your Mum's come-back, I'll have to use it on the kids!

*goes off to look up tall-people jokes before November*

IN PRAISE OF LITTLE PEOPLE (LES MIS).... or to quote garfield "i'm not short - i'm undertall" !!!!!!!

They laugh at me, these fellows, just because I am small.
They laugh at me because I'm not a hundred feet tall.
I tell 'em there's a lot to learn down here on the ground.
The world is big but lil' people turn it around.

A worm can roll a stone.
A bee can sting a bear.
A fly can fly around versailles 'cos flies don't care
A sparrow in a hat, can make a happy home.
A flea can bite the bottom of the pope in rome

Goliath was a bruiser who was as tall as the sky.
But David threw a right, and gave him one in the eye.
I never read the Bible but I know that it's true.
It only goes to show what little people can do.


So listen here, professor with your head in the cloud
It's often kinda useful to get lost in a crowd
So keep your universities -- i don't give a damn
For better or for worse it is the way that i am

be careful as you go
cos little people grow
and little people know
when little people fight,
we may look easy pickings
but we got some bite!
so never kick a dog
because it's just a pup
you'd better run for cover when the pup grows up

and we'll fight like twenty armies
and we won't give up


Oooooh! I love that song! I had forgotten about it!

Hooray for the vertically challenged!!!
