Reasons to be so sad to be petite. + some interesting facts about being petite.

/ Saturday, November 5, 2011 /
I stand officially at 5' 2'', or rather, perhaps 5' 1.5''. I'm not really sure; just somewhere around there.

Tonight, I went out with my girlfriends to go have some fun. One of the girls I went with is a super tall, gorgeous lady - around 5'7'' or something. She was commenting how she wished she were short like me, how for me, there is a wider selection of men to choose from. However, I've got to say, I told her I would've said the same thing to her! I would love to be tall and gorgeous like she is.

Tell you the truth, even though my height is considered petite, the rest of me is pretty petite too. I'm actually pretty normal-sized (with normal "junk" and whatnot) but I have tiny feet (think size 5.5 - 6.5), tiny hands, tiny wrists, whatever.

Problems with being extremely short (petite I guess):
1. All of my pants, even the ones I buy from the petite department, have to be altered to actually fit.
2. None of the rings in most stores fit me.
3. I can still wear the clothes that I bought in the 5th and 6th grade (and still do wear them, hello Limited Too!)
4. I have to use a step-stool in lab in order to reach "taller" cabinets that most people just reach up with their arms to get to.
5. I have tiny ankles that can probably break easily.
6. My feet don't give me much support, so my center of gravity and my anchors to the ground are limited.
7. What most people consider to be shirts are dresses to me.
8. I have to walk extra steps just to catch up to most peoples' normal strides.
9. Wearing maxi dresses is impossible because they just become long enough to be wedding trains.
10. In a crowd, I can never see anything. Lolz.

Now for some interesting facts about being petite:
1. During high school in the winter, after walking home from the bus stop, I would enter my house and just crawl into my parents' laundry dryer. I'm small enough to fit completely inside of there.
2. I can get into and out of crowds pretty easily.
3. I eat a TON of food, perhaps 3X as much as an "average guy", so to speak. People are amazed that such a little girl can eat SO much food. Lolz!

So there you go. Being petite is not all it's cut out to be, I guess. But there are some random facts about being petite as well. What do you think are some advantages/disadvantages of being tall/short? Leave some comments plz!

Oh my gosh!! This post was made for me. I'm 5 foot exactly and done growing, but I love it! Definitely know what you mean about the Limited Too thing. I still own several pairs of my elementary school sweatpants and child size shoes :D I can totally relate to the big crowds and the eating thing too! Small girls rejoice! <3 your blog ^^
