Today’s answers to a small portion of the questions: I’m 6’4″. I played basketball. I played volleyball. My parents were tall. My sisters are tall. My whole family is tall. I buy most of my clothes online. I DO date shorter men. I DO date taller men. I date men, period…..
The questions got to me today in case you didn’t notice. Usually I can shrug them off with an answer and a smile. Most of the time I’ll flirt or crack a joke but not today. Today I was ‘off’. I wanted to yell for back up! Where were my tall ladies when I needed them?!?! I need a horn to summon women over 6’2″ or maybe I’ll just start traveling in my own tall gang. That’s right, tall women traveling in packs! Perhaps that will make me look (and feel) normal on the days I don’t want to deal with it and keep the questions at bay.
What I find even more interesting is the car full of young’uns that yelled some really choice (umm…flattering in a construction worker-type way) words at me when I crossed the street, something about me being a ‘something tall, something-something’ and I could ‘do something’ to one of them that probably would make my mom blush….it didn’t make my night like it usually does. Typically I love that sort of Portland weirdness and I walk away feeling like a million bucks. But not tonight.
Now granted, I’ve got a lot on my mind as of late but for me not to like shouting boys…weird. And even weirder, for me to not like random weird acts of Portlandess that involve ‘boys. Now THAT’s weird.
