Being Short

“I’m not short, I just like to push my driver’s seat forward all the way.”

“I’m not short. You’re just too tall.” (That’s my favorite.)

“I’m not short. I’m fun sized.”

I’m 5’1/5’2. This is sometimes considered short. I may have what’s called “short person syndrome,” which is when a short person thinks they’re bigger, cooler, tougher,  smarter, more attractive, than they really are in order to compensate for their lack of vertical movement.

Thus, I have a problem truly calling myself “short.”

Somehow I have surrounded myself with girls my height, some even shorter, which plumps my pride in this regard a little more.
