My friend Rachelle and I were talking about my height today and how she hadn’t really noticed I was exceptionally tall until about three months ago. Not the first time I’ve had one person feel like I’m shorter than I am while random strangers continue to stop me on the street to ask if I play basketball. I suppose this height thing is all about perspective.
Speaking of perspective, I love Arianne Cohen’s on the subject. At 6’3″, she has a good solid three+ inches on me, but I relate to a lot of what she has to say, and her story is an interesting one… all about being a giraffe and a human exclamation point.
