: Why is the first word you always use to describe yourself "short"?Me:
Because it's the obvious one. "Look for the short chick." People pick me out of a crowd every time.Psych #1
: You seem to focus on being small, it comes up almost randomly in conversation. Why is that?Me:
Because it's not something I ever have a chance to forget about.Psych #1
: Why? Do other people always bring it up? Because you seem to be the one always bringing it up in our conversations.Me:
No, it's because... well, being as short as I am is really tedious.Psych #1
: I don't understand. How is being short tedious?Me:
Like when I cook, if I need something in the pantry, I have to climb up a stool to grab it. God help me if I forget to grab everything I need in one trip, otherwise it's back up the stool. And standing in grocery aisles, waiting for someone, anyone to show up to grab something for me. People are always nice about it, but I'm still the one always stuck there waiting for them.Psych #1
: Huh. I never thought of it like that.
Hi. I'm Morag! There's a number of new people about (I'll get to that in a minute), and it's been awhile since I posted anything that wasn't, well, porn (there's an explanation!), so an intro/update post isn't uncalled for. I've been doing a lot of tumblr-ing too, which has added think-y things, as well as thesis-ing, so more thinking. But yeah, first thing to know about me: I'm 4'9", short enough for it to be annoying, not quite so short that people ask if it's a symptom. Also probably a good giveaway up there: the necessity of numbering my psychiatrists and psychologists.( Knitting, porn, philosophy, fic, and more disturbing insights...Collapse )
