Hello I'am Meggan Welcome to my website.
I could of gone my whole life without knowing how good Nutella is. DAMN. I didn’t even put up a fight. Nutella 1 – My Ass and Belly 0
Benny the puppy. No matter how many times you tell them not to stick their head in the Kleenex box, they never listen. Lucas came to the rescue and finally pulled the box off of Benny’s head, only to then pull out the rest of the Kleenexes and throw them on the floor. They are a team.
In bathrooms across America I have no head. The mirrors in bathrooms everywhere seemed to be positioned for 7th graders, the cast of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, every woman under 5′ 7″ tall, or Hayden Panettiere. I have always said, “I am 5′ 10″ in a 5′ 7″ world. The world fits perfectly if you are 5′7″ tall. You don’t have bruises permanently raked across your thighs from forever walking into tables. Door jams don’t pose immediate danger, you don’t have to yell “INCOMING” whenever attempting to enter a Porsche. If you fall during co-ed soccer people don’t yell “TIMBERRRRR” (thank you high school P.E.) and you don’t check your make-up in the bathroom mirror at a gas station by having to stoop over, as the photo above illustrates.
Don’t get me wrong, I love being tall. I am trying to wean myself off the self Hatorade so I am not going to sit around and stew in my height while I have two legs to walk around on. Sure they are covered in bruises from slamming into things and there hasn’t been a pair of jeans yet that seem to make it all the way to the floor. I have been trying to make high-water pants cool since 1981. It is a good thing I don’t have modest ankles, because those baby’s are never covered up. My ankles bare it all to the world.
When I was growing up I was a gymnast. Nadia Comaneci was my hero. While other girls were slobbering over Barbie, or if you were on the early developed side Kirk Cameron from Growing Pains, I spent my days in a white leotard and braids convinced I was a Romanian Olympic gymnast, or Cher’s child that was put of for adoption. I actually am adopted and I was convinced Cher was my biological Mother, but that story is for another post. Mostly I wanted to be Nadia, except that as other little girls stopped growing, I just kept right on heading North to 5′ 10″.
I didn’t mind being taller than say everyone, as a 7th grader. Sure there were some awkward school dances, and the unfortunate comparisons to a zipper when I stood sideways and stuck my tongue out, but I had bigger worries…like my perm….and the also unfortunate comparisons to a microphone.
All was not lost. I may of had to give up my dream of being a gymnast, or at least the first 5′ 10″ gymnast, but as one door closes another opens. I ran track, modeled a bit and eventually filled out in proportion to my up. In fact, when I was in my high school’s production of A Chorus Line my lovely and supportive gay friend Joel would assure me it was wonderful to be tall and my time would come…for instance his Dad saw A Chorus Line four times and Joel would tell me his Dad said I was the reason he sat in the front row every night. I can only imagine.
She stoops to conquer.
