A collection of items completely unrelated to each other


More work was done on my house yesterday. All sorts of men tramped through with their nail guns. Then my carpet was cleaned. I'm so tired of my house being a construction zone.

In other news...on our way to IKEA Monday we saw an interesting site. A dump truck had run off the road and was stuck in the ditch. Took 2 tow trucks to pull it out.

In family news...my littlest sister is contemplating dating a guy who's shorter than her. Since she's 5'11" it isn't hard to find boys that don't measure up height wise. He's cute as can be, funny, and gets along great with the fam. She says she doesn't mind the difference. I hope they work out. I dated a shorter guy once (he said he was 5'9". I'm 5'7". 5'9" my ass) and lemme tell you it was hard to get over the shortness. I often felt like a giant dinosaur. Could you get over it? Have you?

Not too challenging for me...not so many guys under 5'3". Still it seems I end up with the 6'4" types so I feel wee ;0) Odd.

I'm 5'9". Jr. prom date 5'3". You can see my knees bent in the dress where the photographer wanted us to be "closer" in height. Never again could I date a short fella. Too weird slow dancing with someone who can nestle, if you know what I mean. :)

I am just shy of five feet, so no, I've never had to deal with that issue! On the flip side, I've had guys who would not date ME because I was too short. In an ironic twist of fate, I married a man who is 6'7". We look a little goofy, but we're happy.

My husband is shorter than me.. by 2 inches. To be honest I didnt really even notice it at first.. but there are times now that I feel like an amazon. My stepdaughter (12) is taller than him now too though. So he has giant women all around him!

My sister is 6'0 and deals with short guys all the time... I'll have to ask her about it.

I'm 5' nuthin and my hubby is 6', and I've actually had women on the tallish side get POed at me for "taking a tall guy" when I'm so short. Which, of course, is all part of the diabolical short-girl plot to screw over the tall ladies.

No can do. I do not want a man that is eye-level with my breasts. I want to be eye-level with his! B is 5'11" and I am 5'7". We fit like gloves.

My husband is three inches shorter than I am and neither of us have a problem with it. I love three inch heels and he loves me in them.

I've been in love twice with short guys. I'm 5'8. One was 5'7 and one was 5'6. Neither of them minded and neither did I...once I got used to it. The last one was so confident in his 5'6-ness that he actually liked me in heels. I felt like a movie star a la TomKat.

Late reply from a lurker.

My DH is about 2 inches shorter than I. I am 5`7. It does not bother either of us. We have been married almost 15 years. The longer we are together the more I realize how perfect he is for "me". I am so glad I did not pass him over due to stature.
