June, thank you sooooo much for sharing this. Click away to read: Life as a Tall Girl. This New York Times.com piece was written by 6'4" woman. I can't believe how perfectly this woman captured everything I have ever said about being tall. I know some people don't "get" why rudeness bothers me. But she explains it so well.
I am not sure if I ever posted my own tall story on the blog. I wrote this for one of my writing classes in college. How's the Weather Up There? If you have the time to read both of them, you will see what I mean when I say how perfectly she captured my feelings. It sounds like they were written by the same person.
