    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...

    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...

    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...
