Posted:being short is GOOD. I get cheap clothes and let to the front at gigs and allowed to sit on people's ahoulders and stuff.

i can also get away with stuff cos noone sees me do it... tongue

sometimes i get trod on, but the other stuff makes up for it so i don't mind.

SHORT PEOPLE UNITE!!!! and get back at the tall people who left us out of their club. ubbcrying

Well half of them. Being a short bloke's just annoying and causes nothing but difficulties, hurt and occasionally a sore neck. It also severly limits the choice of ladies available (not that I'm looking...)

Short girls just seem to get the good things and are much cuter than tall ones.

I was under the misconception 5'5" was average, but perhaps I had delusions of granduer...or mediocre...or something.

Anyway, where should I place the chocolate covered strawberries? Oh and there are regular strawberries and such for those who don't like chocolate.

Short is definitely a good thing...of course, I think that's because I've managed to master the short and cute thing. I think my body would be a little out of whack if you just elongated it.

Posted:i am short (5'2) very short. many of my friends are also short and many a free period at collage will find us in the drama suit locking my mate megan in a stationary cubord for our tutor to find at the start of the lesson. ubblol

one bad thing about being short is that people tend to assume that you are more adgile and can clime trees, also that you like being picked up and spun round or carried off across the room.

all in all i wouldn't want to be tall and average is a bit to mundane sounding. 5'6 is the hight i would like.

luv trixy ubbangel

Posted:one thing i hate about being short is that my friend who is tall says thing like "look at that sunset, oh hang on you might not be able to see it from down there" and "whats the view like from down there?" on the other hand i have an advantage when we are chucking things at each other because there is more surface area for me to aim at.

i am short, this information can be obtained by looking at my location. i live in a box, i didn't mention however that it is in fact a match-box. it is a pain every time i want to type a post i have to put little lead pelits in my pockets and jump up and down on the keyboard. i started writing this reply before the thread was even started, using my phycicakonetikaletical powers to see into the future.

in short i am short. ubbloco
