I love being tall- always have. But sometimes it is too much of a good thing.
Queues in school were always height order wise- do tall people feel less hungry? Any less urgency to visit the loo?
Always assigned the boy's role in all skits in an all girls school
Never got to wear the Bata "Ballerina" school shoes post Class VIII because toes would not fit- managed with the ugly flat front
Not allowed on some rides in amusement parks because I looked tall for their cut off age ( Appu Ghar- I still hate you)
Invariably needed to prove my age on the train
I dream of finding a pair of shoes that fit me fine- a strappy smart one that does not have 4 inch heels! Actually even a pair of beautiful "ladies" sneakers will do.
I feel clumsy to have to add on at least 2-3 inches length/ height to every ready-made salwar and sometimes even saris
I fear getting bumped on my head without fail, when the door is rather low
I sink into the movie seat because the dude behind can barely see the screen through my head
Sometimes have shorter perverted men look inadvertently "you know where"
And yes, then and now, THE most boring of all, is to be asked " How is the weather up there"
