After class, Justin's mom appeared in the hallway. We chatted for a while; she seems to be very generous about letting Justin use her car during his spring break.

Suddenly she looked at me and said, "You're really short!"

And suddenly, I was--I didn't feel short until she said that.

I'm never sure about how to respond to comments like that ("Your hair's getting long!" "How do you stay so skinny?" are some others I've heard.)

I responded by saying, "Oh, I don't know. I'm 5'3"--is that short?"

Ah, yes, the "short" comments. I get them all the time (mostly in a joking way), so I'm used to it. Don't feel bad, I'm 5 feet and I'm probably going to stay that way!
