How I Became A "shorty" To My Younger Sister :-(
Growing up was fun for me until I was 15 or so. I grew up really fast during my early days and I was one among the tallest boys in my class. My sister, who is 3 years younger than me was just the opposite. She was a small, short girl initially but now, am 19 and she is 16, and is 4 inches taller than me, and she is very much excited about it, making fun of me calling names such as "shorty" and all.
I reached the height of 5'4 at the age of 14 and was aiming to touch 6 ft within another 2 years. I was the same height as my mother and was aiming to overtake my father, who is 5'10. But sadly, I never knew that I would grow only an inch more to 5'5 and remain a small man for the rest of my life.
To my dismay, my younger sister, who was tiny during her childhood, was starting to grow tall and tall. And she was really excited about it. I noticed over the days that she was really growing up and she was shooting up in height. She was closing up on me.
Initially, she used to compare her height with the fridge in our house. Once she overtook the fridge, her attention turned to my mother. She used to regularly compare her height with my mother, and my parents were very excited to see their little girl grow tall and tall day by day.
When I was 17 and my sister was 14, both of us were equal in height. We both were 5'5. I don't know why this happened to me but I just managed to grow an inch more after reaching 5'4 at the age of 14. Now that both of us were equally tall, she regularly compared her height with me and kept reminding me that she is going to overtake me in height very soon.
Then, on her 15th birthday, I got to know the reality once and for all. We took a family photo and when I got to see the original photo, I realised how tiny I was standing besides by tall "little" sister. She was a towering figure now, standing as tall as 5'8 now, 3 inches taller than me and just an inch smaller than my father. She now left behind my mother and me for height comparison and started targeting my father.
My sister constantly makes fun of me in front of my friends and her friends, calling me names like "shorty" and telling me to "call her big sister".
Now, I am 19 years old and my sister is 16. She is 5'9 now, 4 inches taller than me. I have given up hope of growing taller now, and made up my mind to be satisfied with being a "shorty" for the rest of my life :-(
I really feel sad for those boys who, like me may have younger sisters who are taller than them. Its really a pathetic feeling for a boy to see his younger sister grow as tall as you, and like in my case, grow taller than me :-(
