A Bit more about Me.

I started going grey when I was 17, boy that was a thrill, so I first started out streaking my hair, but after a couple years I got tired of the cap and pulling my hair through those tiny holes, so I say to myself, "just do it right", so I did. I have been Blond ever since. Different kinds of blond, but blond never-less.

My mother always told me that I went grey so early because I kept running into things. Being tall isn't always so fun. Yeah, I can look over the top of most people but I keep hitting my head on things that are too low, or come up from bending down to meet the edge of a cubard door.

Being Tall. Wow, I would imagine most people think it's great and like I just said it has it's moments, but it also is a pain in the butt. I am short waisted, so any dress with a waist built in is out of the question for me. Those kinds of dresses hang below my waist. Finding pants long enough is another problem. Back in the day when I grew up girls were not suppose to be tall and they made everything too short at a regular store so I shop exclusively in tall shops. Now take a double bed (full size), my feet hang over the edge of a bed that size. What a joy when they started making queen and king size beds.

Certain types of cars are out of the question. I have more leg from the waist down than I have body from the waist up, so any of those low slung cars are a no no. If I manage to get down, I will never get back up without help. So, I bought a truck for myself and love it. And I stay out of low slung cars.

Low couches are another problem, or chairs for that matter. There is no lady like way to get out of a low couch. Low for me is normal for everyone else. The kitchen sink is another problem. They are made for the average person, so working at counter level for me, means I am constantly bending over.

Movie theaters are another problem. I have to sit on the isle. If I venture in my knees hit the back of the seat in front of me. It's the same in most cars, buses, planes. I have never been on a train, other than at Disneyland.

But I wouldn't trade being tall with anyone who is not. I do like it except for the problems. I have learned to get around most of them or I just don't do it, or sit there.

Take care everyone

Kat, when I was in high school, I went to several dances with girls older and taller than me. One made the comment that it was really fun being on a date with someone that didn't make the "taller than me" thing an issue. We danced all night. It was great! The height difference didn't matter to me. I just thought she was a fun person to be around. Wonder what became of her? Good days gone by...
