Too tall? Too tall for what? For reaching the top shelf? For having long, lovely legs? For running, jumping, playing? For working?

From one tall girl to another, I've never been too tall for anything. That includes a good pair of stilettos.

you tell 'em

Leighana said...

Tall is awesome. Go you.

Taylor said...

Oh how many times have I heard this one! Also, when asking an older gentleman who was very tall himself why all the tall guys marry short girls. Because their are cute was his reply. Thanks, so what am I? You're tall. As if that is the one word that defines us.

Sigh.

ayiyi. these insecure men + their silly traditionalist views. i dated a gentleman who was my height -- not an issue for me, but he literally kept track of when i wore heels/flats.

xo!

You are delightful!

A friend of mine was told that she wasn't marriage material because she had cold hands. Sometimes people...

Well, their silly comments make wonderful blog posts ;)

PREACH girl! I hate when boys say that. why don't YOU grow? I am perfectly content with my height, thank you.

Britti said...

I always wished i was tall, don't have to shorten my trousers, can actually see something at a concert and reach the top shelf without the help of a chair.
And, I love that photo of you. You're beautiful.

i hope you said that! and i'm pretty sure that most people find tall women stunning (and never too tall)! and delightful! :)

Mackenzie said...

delightful you are, my dear :)

Kelle said...

hahaha, oh my - i can relate. over the weekend i was talking with a man. sitting across from him. and when we both stood up he gave me the once over and said 'ohhhh...'

i'm just going to assume it meant 'ohhh you're tall and beautiful!'

rock those long legs, girl. :) the people who can't appreciate it are just crazy.

Kate said...

Some guys are just ridiculous. One time a guy asked my friend if she was 5'11. She replied that she was actually 5'10. And then he told her that's too bad because girls who are 5'11 are "totally hot." Kind of the opposite, but ridiculous nonetheless.
