1. When people are like, “Wow, you are SO short!”

Um, thank you. I was completely unaware of that fact. Why don’t you tell me something I don’t know.

2. When you’re only as tall as someone’s chest

Nobody likes talking to boobs…unless they’re guys. And I’m not so….

3. When you can’t get off your bike because the bar is too high

4. When your friends tower over you

It’s ok, I just tell people that I’m fun-sized.

5. When you sit on a seat and your feet don’t touch the ground

My bum can go numb from having no contact with my feet but I just make the best of it by swinging my legs around.
