Funny Story: The Not-So Tall Girl

In middle school I remember a girl in class with a trait we never did notice. Near the end of the 8th grade year, she complains about feet pain and takes off her shoes. For some reason, she wore high-heels all year long. I figured as much because everyone was shocked to see that not only did she obviously lose height, but she was actually very short. While being tall isn't important to women as it is to men, perception is everything. Though at least she could wear high-heels, men can't really do anything to look taller.

  4. Bless her heart...I happen to think short is adorable.
    Men can put lifters in their shoes but, who cares that much if you are an inch or two taller ??

  5. Just looking at these makes my feel hurt. I have a lot of problems now because I wore shoes like this when younger.

  6. What about so-called "elevator shoes" for men? They can discreetly add an inch or two or at least they could in the old days. Perhaps nowadays they are too instantly recognizable as height enhancers and so men can't/won't wear them anymore.
