Short, Part 2

INT. QUINQUIREME TOWERS - DAY

There is a carrier bag on top of the Mysterious Edwardian Hallrobe that I need to retrieve, but I can't reach it.

ME: Can you reach that carrier bag down for me?

(Mr BC dutifully retrieves carrier bag.)

ME: You know, I never thought of myself as being particularly short until I met you. It didn't even occur to me.

Mr BC: Aww. I don't think of you as short.

ME: Oh, good.

Mr BC: I think of you as tiny.

Cheer up, you're just the right height to punch him in the nuts.

Empirically, she is tiny, like a tiny pisky.

Also I accused James of looking 'a bit homeless' in his latest, erm, publicity photo, so there are probably grounds for mutual punching.

Although I'd have the advantage of being able to hide under a toadstool.

James said...

Ha ha... 'High 5' to me BC for that comment. That did make me laugh, sorry patroclus.

Don't give him ideas!

Only hang around with people who are shorter than you - it makes you look must taller.

Recently experienced feeling tall - for about 30 seconds. I ran downhill to a group of people dancing by a stage. When I got there I realised the average age was 4 and they were all dressed in pink. (It was a festival).

Think I prefer having to look up at everyone...

My friend Pat once said to me, "Well, I don't think of you as fat." {pause}. "I just think of you as — you know, round."

'a bit homeless'?
i'm going to have to ponder that
