How’s the weather up there?

The weather up here at 6’2″ is quite nice, I must say. I don’t mind being tall, at least now.

When I was younger it was a little rough. I was the tallest girl all through elementary school, and most of the time I was taller than any of the boys in my classes. In 4th grade, I was one of two girls on an all boys basketball team. I didn’t get to touch the ball even once in the games as the boys would not pass the ball to me.

Junior high was the worst, as I was so much taller than everyone, especially in the small town I was in. What an awkward time! I was so skinny and clumsy. My coach told me that I couldn’t jump higher than a cigarette paper. You grow 3 inches in a summer and see if you can even walk straight. I had no muscle tone at all.

I finally came into my own in high school. We had moved to a big city and suddenly there were lots of tall guys and some tall girls. That’s where I met my best friend Rhetta. At 6’2″, she was the same height as me, we had an instance kinship. She understood my tall woes and we went everywhere together. We even dated some twins for a while. Suddenly, my height was seen as elegant and sought after. I have been amazed at the difference in attitudes as I have gotten older.

I am now married to a tall man, and I can wear heels. I am quite popular in the grocery stores as many shorter women ask me to get the cans off the top shelf. I can see over a crowd at all times, and I don’t have to worry about drowning in the swimming pool. Being tall isn’t so bad, in fact I rather love it!

I hope you will enjoy Tall Clothing Mall and would love to have you connect with me.

  1. Congrats on getting you blog up and running. Fun, isn’t it? If we reach cans off the top shelf for others, does that mean we can ask the short people to get the bags of beans off the bottom shelves for us? My head gets weird when I lean over that far…..

    Let’s hope for lots and lots of tall people to join us in remembering our tall adventures. We did have some amazing ones while smashed in your little car and cruisin’.

    Here’s a toast to good business and lots of fun!
