I Think Being Short Is Awesome

    At Least I Don't Hit My Head Often.

    Being less than five feet I've heard them all. Shorty..shrimp..smurfette...itty bitty...and munchkin. It doesn't really bother me. The only thing that gets annoying is people thinking because I'm little..I can't lift anything. Sure I may not be able to reach the top shelf in the...

    When you are short, you don't need

    as much food. I think that is better than anything. Still, you can not be as strong as a tall person. Then again, it is so much easier to get fat, which I also think is awesome. Regardless, I am great as I am.

    When I was in the sixth grade,

    I was among the tallest of my class. I am not sure what happened but six years later, I now measure 4'11 and a half. So, I am used to having to look up at people when I am near them or walking into people's chests or bellys when I am not looking. Lol But hey, I may be short but...

    Short Chicks Are Hot

    I'm 6' tall myself, but I am attracted to women who are much shorter. Especially chubby ones.

    Falling in love releases the same amount of dopamine into the brain as doing cocaine does, you don't need something artificial to make you feel good, think about that.
