Short Like Me...

Short Like Me...
By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee...   I'm short... don't get me wrong ...I love people my height... it just felt strange for everyone to 'be short all at one time'...... :)))

I was walking around in amazement... at Walmart, of all places.  I looked all around me... I didn't believe what I was seeing.  To see a face... I didn't have to 'look far'... they were 'all on my level'.

As I walked, I looked all around to see a 'tall' person.  Ah... there's Skip... he's the tallest person I see.  I can't believe all 'these short people'... 'short people'... like me.  I felt uncomfortable.  How did everyone get to be so short.  Was today a 'short' day?  What's going on?

No... I just couldn't believe it.  Their legs were no longer than mine.  In fact, some legs were 'shorter'.... How come I was uncomfortable with people 'my height'?  Why did 'short' affect me like that?  I am 'that short'.  When I say short, I mean like 5 feet, 2 inches short.

Every aisle I turned down... everyone was the same height.  Was someone playing a trick on me?  How did they know I was coming to 'that Walmart'?  We don't usually go to the same one everytime.

I just couldn't take it... I'm short, but... I can't be around a lot of short people at one time.  I want to close my eyes... it make me dizzy.  I like 'different'... all sizes of people around me.  It balances out 'everything'.

Don't ask me 'why?'  It's just the way it was.  Everyone today was ... short like me.

  1. I am glad you like short people! I am shorter than you! I am about 5 ft. Sometimes I feel shorter than that and other days I feel a little taller. Most people are taller than I am but it doesn't bother me. I am use to that. It does feel strange when I would see someone shorter than me! Love, Ms. Nancy
