I actually felt small yesterday...
« on: October 10, 2010, 10:08:14 AM »
and no, not because I put my foot in my mouth, again.


At 5'7" tall and very round, there is only one other girl at work who is tall than me, and maybe a couple that come close to being as round as I am, so it's not very often I feel small.

Yesterday 2 police officers came into the store, for some type of store business. One of them I see often, as he's ther a lot, and he probably stands 6'2. The one with him was probably closer to 6'4, while they aren't very broad, they are pretty big guys. I thanked them for making me feel small. They both laughed.

I stand barely over 5 foot, and I have joked with shorter friends that I like standing next to them, to see what it is like for others.

My Honey makes me feel small! I'm 5'7" and 140 lbs. He's 6'4" and 240 lbs.

Normally I don't notice it too much, but there are times. Like the other day, we were on the patio and he noticed one of the water lines for the misting system had come loose. He just reached up and tightened it. His arm wasn't even extended all the way. I went over there. I couldn't even reach it if I jumped.

I really notice it in pictures when we're standing next to each other. The guy is HUGE compared to me!

See!

At my sister's wedding, my DH (then DF) escorted our mother down the aisle.

Mom is 5'3, 98 lbs. DH is 6'1, 240 lbs.

It was kind of amusing to watch them coming down the aisle together.

I'm 5'6" and my husband is 6'4". When we were planning our wedding, I saw a cake topper with the bride standing on her toes next to her groom. I bought it immediately even though we didn't serve cake.

(Don't worry, there was pie.)

Southern Honey and I both cock in around 5'6".  My younger brother tops the charts at 6'2".  The photos of the three of us from our wedding are hilarious because it highlights the difference so well:

My STBX is 6'3" and I am 5'3". People didnt realize how much is a size difference there was until they saw our wedding photos (and i was wearing massive heels but i barely came up to his shoulders!) I can send photos via PM, but probably not a good idea to post on a public forum seeing as how we are getting divorced and all ;)

I'm 5'1" (almost) and I married into a family of really tall people.  The shortest is MIL who is about 5'7" or so.  This pic from our wedding highlights what I'm talking about:


DH himself is about 5'11", and his sisters are about 5'8" and 5'11" (they're wearing heels in the picture, but not big ones).

My DH and I always joke that I am only with him because he makes me feel petite and feminine. I'm 5'8" and around 200 lbs and he's 6'4" and around 285  :D

In all seriousness, I've always been attracted to larger men.

My mom is 5'0. She thinks I am tall at 5'3". My dad is a whoping 5'6" then comes my baby brother at 6'11 3/4" !!  Yep, 1/4 of an inch shy of 7 foot! When I give him a hug, I don't even come up to his arm pits!

I don't usually feel small, being 5'8 1/2'' and 200+ lbs... even though my sweetie is 6'4'' and also 200+ lbs. But sometimes it smacks me in the face how tall he is, like when he barely has to put his arm up to lean against the door jamb. Though I guess it's better than when he dated a girl who was 4'11''. He said he always felt like some sort of offender when he had to pick her up and put her in his car, even though she was older than he was.

In other tall + short stories, my best friend's 6'2'' brother is marrying a 4'11'' lady, and when I worked at a pizza place, we had a girl who was 5'' and a guy who was 6'11''. She drove an SUV and he drove a compact.

I'm almost 5'4"and my hubby is 6'6". When we got married I had a stool made with our's and our kids names on them and I stood on it for our first kiss. Everyone laughed.  ;D

There was an assembly at my kids school, so I went to watch. (DD plays in the marimba band).  There is a new staff member there who is about 6'7".  I was trying to hide so DD wouldn't see me, so I playfully asked him if I could hide behind him, as he was the only available option (I am 6'2"). I admit I did enjoy standing next to him.  I wasn't able to hide anyway as the kids came in the door I was next to instead of the one I was expecting.
