Made My Day!

I am short. When I wake up, feelin' tall and stretched out, I am almost 5'1". By the end of the day I'm probably an even 5'. I can not count how many times I've had to ask for help at the grocery/target/whatnot to reach something on a shelf. I can not count how many times I have CLIMBED the shelves because there was no one to assist.

Today, however, was different. Today I was tall. Today I was an Amazon (sans rock-hard abs...sigh). Today I was a long, cool, drink of water. Today was AWESOME!!!

I was in the soup aisle at the grocery because the crumbgobblers inhale entire cans of Curly Chicken Noodle and we were out. Standing near me was a REALLY short lady. Call me a liar if she was over 4'9". And you know what happened?? SHE asked ME if I would kindly reach a can of Campbell's Beef Barley soup for her. "Oh! Of course!" I practically shouted at her in my mega-excitement. (In my mind I was yelling "OH MY GOSH! I CAN'T BELIEVE SOMEONE ASKED ME TO GET SOMETHING HIGH OFF A SHELF!!! AAAGGGHHHH! OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH!!!") I was so beside myself I couldn't even find the freaking soup, even though they are displayed alphabetically (as you know).

There has been an extra skip-de-do in my step today and my heart even beat a wee bit faster as I was writing this.

I love your blog! I do feel short sometimes too...especially with a 6'4" husband that I am about a foot shorter than. :) It's the little things in life!
