The short end of the stick
Generally speaking (and I mean very generally) I confine my ramblings to food and drink or the mundane world of household chores, but I do have other interests and feel compelled from time to time to express an opinion or hazard a conjecture on that which falls outside the domestic realm. Such was the case last week when my virtual pal, the Freshly Pressed Cristy Carrington, penned a post entitled 5 Reasons Why God Loves Short People Best. As I am somewhat lacking in stature I begged to differ, and the good folks at More magazine have seen fit to include my little rant among their member blogs.
I hope you’ll have a look. Here’s the link just in case:

Great work! I actually loved this one!
square feet also:) everything hemmed. for the longest time, i went around believing i was 5’4″ until a recent dr.’s visit. 5″3.5″ they said. “measure again.” i said. i don’t think they saw what the big deal was. fools.
Half an inch is nothing more than margin of error, and we always round UP, not down. You ARE five foot four, you probably just didn’t have your butt adequately tucked under.
Oh, how I laughed right out loud…I used to be of an average height…but shrinking daily. I also have “square” feet, nearly as wide as they are long and I’ve had surgery on both feet. Not fun trying to find shoes that will make them happy that don’t look like “lunch lady” shoes.
It’s the shrinking and the granny shoes that make it all so unbearable. Yours, in the struggle, KS
Congratulations, you domestic diva!
You’re too kind. As we say in the weight room, “It’s all you.” (I do SO bang the iron.)
Congratulations! Great article.
Many thanks. I really enjoy your blog. Your posts are brief, clever and they always hand me a laugh.
