shortness

i am what some call "short"...i've lived 40 years hearing short jokes.
if you've heard it, it's been said to me....remember that terrible song "short people got no reason to live"? yeah, i was in like 4th grade and kicked a kid at school in the ankle for singing that to me.
i broke his ankle...no one ever messed with me again.

i am 4 feet, 10 inches {almost}...and yes, i am aware that if i were one inch shorter i would legally be a "little person"...but i'm not. i also am NOT your grandma and i don't need to know that i am exactly her size...just so you know. :)i am a 40 year old woman who has to stop strangers in the grocery to get boxes from the top 2 shelves...i don't use any shelves in my kitchen above the first one bc i can't reach anything without the use of my "reacher"...some tall people call them spatula's or tongs, but i use them to reach the coffee cup on the second shelf.

as for stools...i don't need no stinking stools. wimps use stools. and i am no wimp.
but ryan's best bud, brian, was jacking around on the beach trying to "be" the short...and he dug himself into the sand.and then there was reality...wow. when i see the picture i can't even believe i am that short! it's crazy!i did find out on vacation last week what i really am...and it has changed my life. rue21 {love it} made my life on a shirt...
'i'm not short, i'm fun sized"

ahhhh...perfection. it's nice and cute and well, i can wear it with attitude.

since i'm a little older these days, if anyone makes snide comments, i can't kick them in the ankle, but i can give do the "hot short chick look".

{{oh, and another thing...this working out like a dog and watching my food is taking the weight off me! i think i'm getting the "hot" part of the look a little closer these days!! ok, so there's still a ways to go, but i'm feeling it...and that's good.}}

YOu are beautiful inside and out & your height has nothing to do with it. Love that shirt. Fun Size...that is for sure you!

You are exactly the same size as my mother-in-law! A few inches shorter and both she and my son would have to fight over the booster seat in the car!!! It makes me giggle.

But see, I feel like a freaking giant next to her, and it seems like I have more than my share of friends that I tower over, which has always left me feeling less-petite, less-cute, less-feminine, and more gangly than others. It's great that you can appreciate how darn CUTE your height is and play it up. =)

What a cute saying! "I'm not short, I'm FUN SIZED!"


Now you have a perfect positive spin on it all:)

Dont feel bad... Im only one and 1/2 inches taller....great things come in small packages!

Karen said...

For serious?! Small people are THAT tall? Wow, no idea.

And I love that shirt. I'm a whopping 2" taller than you are and should probably invest in that one. Rue 21, huh?

DysFUNctional Mom said...

You look great! And I still think you should give anyone who messes with you a good hard kick in the ankle!

Heather @ Not a DIY Life said...
