The Tall Tales of a 6'4" Chocolate Cyclops Woman in a 5'4" American Woman World

marvinaImagine being a towering 6'4" tall woman in a world where the average height seems to be a mere 5'4". It's like being a giraffe in a herd of penguins! While it certainly has its highs, there are also shortcomings to being a towering presence in today's America. Brace yourself for a humorous journey through the land of the vertically gifted.

Let's start with the benefits, shall we? First and foremost, reaching for the top shelf is never a problem. While others struggle with step stools and awkward stretches, you can effortlessly grab that box of cookies or that old book without breaking a sweat. Who needs a ladder when you have a built-in height advantage?

Another advantage is the ability to spot your friends in a crowded room. With vertical optical GPS, you can quickly scan over the heads of the crowd and locate your pals in an instant. No more lost-in-the-crowd panic for you! Plus, you make the perfect lookout for concerts and sporting events. Your friends will be eternally grateful for the unobstructed views you provide.

On the downside, being a tall woman can sometimes mean standing out like a sore thumb. People's heads turn, and you become the center of attention wherever you go. You can't blend into the crowd, no matter how hard you try. Embrace the spotlight! You were born to stand out, after all.

One of the more comical challenges is finding clothes that fit properly. While some women struggle with finding petite sizes, you're on the opposite end of the spectrum. Pants are perpetually too short, sleeves barely reach your wrists and dresses become unintentional minis. Shopping becomes a treasure hunt for the elusive "tall" section, and alterations become your new best friend.

Now, let's talk about relationships. Dating can be an adventure when you're a towering beauty. Some men might feel intimidated, while others see it as an opportunity for a neck workout. But fear not! There are plenty of fish in the sea who appreciate a woman who can reach the top shelf without help. Just ensure your partner is up to the challenge of being the shorter one in the relationship.

Lastly, let's not forget the hilarious encounters with strangers who feel the need to comment on your height. "Wow, you're tall!" they exclaim, as if you were completely unaware. And the classic, "Do you play basketball?" becomes a regular conversation starter. Embrace these encounters with grace and humor, and you'll navigate them like a pro. My favorite comeback is so tell me about your days as a jockey.

So, dear tall ladies of America, embrace your lofty stature and revel in the unique experiences it brings. You are a shining beacon among your shorter counterparts, a delightful anomaly in this 5'4" ordinary American woman world. Stand tall, quite literally, and let your height be a source of pride and amusement. After all, life is too short to be anything but fabulous, regardless of your height! I do have to say I wouldn’t change it for the world. I see things from the perspective that most people will never, with less than 0.5% of men and women in the States being my height and less than 1% worldwide.
