I Think Being Short Is Awesome

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 106 People

    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.

    Short Chicks Are Hot

    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...

    Hey, How's the Weather Up There?

    I'm only 5 foot tall and even though it can be a pain sometimes I enjoy being short.  I've had some interesting nicknames like half-pint, shorty, short stuff, Itty Bitty Witty, etc.  I have a wooden stool I call my assistant and I drag it all over the house with me to...

    Always Been A Little Thing

    It's never bothered me so much. I'm five feet...but proportioned well. Small boned, thin, with a nice little figure. Men have always found me cute and liked the fact they can pick me up because I dont' weigh much. I've been told I have a "big presence" to go with my smallness...

    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...
