‘What’s up Tall Girl?’
I hear this phrase about twice a week on my walk to work. It’s always from the same man and it’s usually right around the capital as I make my way around it. It doesn’t bother me, in fact I usually look up, grin, maybe wave, and keep on walking.
The first few times he said it, he would then say, ‘Did you play ball?’ I’d answer it the exact same way until he finally said, ‘Didn’t I talk to you yesterday?’ It’s almost like he didn’t recognize me at first but now we have a mutual ‘morning thing’….and I like it. It’s like being Norm from Cheers.
So, let’s see….what IS up?
I met another tall girl here in Madison. My sister (6’1″) came to visit me a couple of weeks ago and we hopped around all day, having a drink and sometimes an appetizer, in as many places as possible. We bellied up to a bar right in the downtown square and this is where we met our tall bartender. She was 6’1″. My sister and I started chatting with her about our different height experiences and this girl was so cool! I love it when you meet tall, cool, chicks. I think I made a friend and even better, we exchanged digits.
I got my heart busted up…again. I let someone back into my life and probably should’ve waited til things were a little clearer before trying to jump back in. It’s not like you can simply stop loving someone at the drop of a hat and I thought that he was ready to compromise and work towards the same goals. At least that was the message I was getting…I guess just because it’s love doesn’t mean it will work. Love does not conquer all, people! Remember that… Smile through the hurt (and eat). Okay, don’t really eat but you know the drill.
I am going to Mexico in about a month!!! I will probably be the tallest girl there,but I’m ready to have a good time. I’m going with 3 of my closest girlfriends and I have a feeling we are going to make some great memories. I’ve known these girls since college and I simply can’t wait to see them and share a lot of laughs. I’ve never been to Mexico so I’m picturing tequila, beaches, tans, and some debauchery that I probably won’t be able to share. Ha!
So while my 2013 so far has had multiple stops and starts and right at the moment I’m not ‘feeling it’, things can only get better. This Tall Girl has low expectations and high hopes. What more can you ask for? Cheers to that!
