    So Am I

    OK, so I'm not very tall, what can I do about it.  My mom is short and her mom was even shorter.  But on the bright side, there's now a group I can join where no one will be taller than me.

    hehehe so the last time i checked my height it

    was 5,7.9 so that's basically 5'8 right? or should i not say i am 5'8 but 5'7. i prefer 5'8 because i am a bit taller than 5'7 and when people ask m height i cant say 5'7.9 so it's easier to just say 5'8 right? what ya guys think? :)
