I've always had short jokes in my life, but embraced it early enough that people didn't have a chance to be hurtful about it. That being said, my brother did use to sing the song, "short people have no reason" and I hated that. What a stupid song - the guy who sang it was an idiot and hateful.
My goddaughters and nieces are having fun now that they are in their teens, comparing their newly acquired heights to me... but they do that to everyone and I think it's cute and pretend to be scared that they're catching up (some are now even taller, and in fun I deny it with passion!). I guess for me the thing is to not get too wrapped up about it.
Early in my 20's, I worked for an international private college and I was the average height at 5'3"... most of the students were from China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore and thereabouts. When I left that job, I missed being average height!
Oh, and I almost caught up to the height of my older brother when we were young teens, then he shot up to 5'10". Damn him!!
I appear to be rambling... sorry!
