Take That Back!!!

T1G has a post up about the passing of Anna Nicole Smith.

I'm not going to say anything on THAT subject, simply because I was taught if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.

BUT, I still want you to click over and be SURE and read the comments in that post. Seriously.

Now, first - Contagion is a FRIEND of mine. I've spent time with he and his family - hell, there is even a picture (that I WON'T link to) of the two of us standing together.

He is fully aware that I am NOT height challeneged.

So imagine the pain his comment caused. MONSTEROUSLY tall? MONSTEROUSLY?!?!?!

I had to call him on it. Literally. One, because I know how much he hates to talk on the phone, so that's always fun. But also, I wanted to give him the chance to explain himself.

He tried. He really did.

At first he thought Smith was 6'6" or something. Ok, THAT'S tall. But MONSTEROUSLY? I'm 6'5" in my heels (now that we've got the whole OH GOD I'M SHRINKING thing figured out). MONSTEROUSLY?

Then he stammers a bit and say's maybe it was 6'2". I'm 6'2" in my barefeet. Everyday. All Day Long.


So he looked it all up. Seems she was 5'11". That's when he said maybe he was thinking of someone else.

Yeah. Right.

I'm crushed. I never knew the TRUE thoughts of my friend. I never realized he thought I was a "freak of nature". Dude. I'm gonna need restitution on this.

You guys have any suggestions on that? What could Contagion POSSIBLY do to make up for the intense mental anguish this has caused me?

Grilling something like a nice steak for you while wearing nothing but a pair of boxer shorts & a tshirt in subfreezing temps a staying out there for the duration.

No, he'd enjoy that michele. Gotta be something like calling everyone on your phone list and talking for a mandatory 5 minutes about how wonderful it is to talk on the phone to them and how much he likes hugs.

Ha. I like Oddy's idea....

You're 6'% in heels? Hmm. As short as I am I think I'd really enjoy hugging you.

I like Oddy's idea! and it would be oh, so wonderful to be on that call list being that I'm home sick with NO ONE to talk to.

C'mon! I wasn't referring to you! You're not monstrously tall, your vertically perfect in every way! As for making up for some imagined intense mental anguish, I'd be willing to pose in a picture with you while wearing a kilt! :)

Amen Oddy! :-)

Bahahaha it's funny watching him try to pull that size 14 1/2 foot out of his mouth :)

6'6" is only monsterously tall if you're that tall because of having horns....

I think he should be forced to develop candlemaking skills, and make you some fine candles.

Tall girls are sexy. Tall girls with their hair up are... Damn, cold shower time.

Sounds like phone calls should be the punishment...I'll add my cell and home #s to the list.
