So while we were getting our drink on we were sitting outside on the little patio talking to some neighbors. This one neighbor is very small. He said he's 5'7" but I think he added a few inches since I'm 5'5" tall and I'm pretty sure he's not really taller than me. He said he weighs 120 pounds. So pretty slim and not too tall.
I'm sure I've mentioned here before that my husband is a big man. He's 6'6" and he is pretty solid.
(Here he is with our kids and his mom)
We are sitting at he picnic table with this neighbor, we'll call him "Steve" since that's a pretty universal name (and his too!) All of a sudden, Steve, who has had his share of the happy hour drinks, realizes just how much bigger Scott is than him.
LOOK AT THE SIZE OF YOUR ARM!!
It's bigger than my LEG!
LOOK AT THE SIZE OF YOUR SHOE!
What size shoe do you wear? (15)
WOW I WEAR AN 8 1/2 :cough: 8
LOOK AT THE SIZE OF YOUR HEAD
Seriously he said that
He even had Scott pose for a picture with him. Scott was being a REALLY good sport through all this. But it went ON AND ON AND ON. It started to get really uncomfortable after awhile. Eventually we made excuses to go inside to get away from him.
Here's a few things you should never say to someone that is really tall.
1. Did you play basketball?
(not every tall person plays basketball and I think this is the most asked question)
2. You're like A GIANT!
(Gee thanks for pointing that out)
3. How much do you weight?
4. You must go through a lot of food!
(why yes, yes we do)
5. What size shoe do you wear?
6. LOOK AT YOUR HANDS! and then proceed to put your hand next to the "giant's" hand. Then look at his wife and wink. (NICE!)
7. How did you get so big?
(ummm how did you get so small?)
Tall people are like everyone else, just bigger! No need to point things out, they KNOW they are bigger than you!Pin It
