    My Mom is six foot and and my Dad is six-one.

    And they still are tall because they're not dead yet.

    It has always been a wonderment how I got a brother that is almost 6 feet tall! (Now, no lessons in recessive genes and all of that, I know where he did get his height...) Mom was barely over 5 feet and Dad was about 5'7"... I am even one of the tallest girls in the family, so we both lucked out on not being short.

    My father was around 5'10". My mother was, like myself, a 5' shrimp. My grandmother was 4'10". My kid brother was 6'3". If he wasn't the spitting image of my father's father, I'd wonder where he came from.

    Flintstone's vitamins...I'm guessing.

    Well, Mother attributed it to the Flintstones vitamins.

    My brother was a short, fat, Pillsbury doughboy until he hit 15. Then, all we ever saw of him was an open refrigerator door with feet sticking out of it and, finally, a head at the top.

    I used to say he was secretly showering in MiracleGro.

    I worked with two people who ended up getting married. She was a bit taller than I am (around 5'1", I'm guessing) and he was a former pro basketball player...7'2". I moved but I've always wondered how their kids turned out.

    It would be interesting to see.

    As far as being short, Kitanya, be happy. A lot of guys like someone small enough to fit into their lap.

    1. Go into a store.
    2. Find an aisle with a great-looking tall guy in it.
    3. Try to reach something on a top shelf.
    4. Bat your eyelashes.
    5. Thank him for helping you.
    6. Stick your tongue out at your friends.

    It's all about technique.

    Volim, you aren't a freak...you're special! Think about the vast sea of under-6' men you have who will adore you. And, the tall ones will want to cherish you.

    Short can have real benefits.
