I'm not a tall man. DW isn't tall either, so it comes as no surprise that we have petite daughters. Still, it doesn't keep them from trying.
Here's a recent phone conversation that I had with my youngest squirt:
DD13: "Hi, Dad, I'm very tall."
Me: "What makes you say that."
DD13: "I'm wearing very tall heels. I'm tall, now."
Me: "You think that makes you tall?"
DD13: "Yes. I'm so tall that I had to bend low to throw something in the garbage bin. I'm so tall."
Me: "But artificially so."
DD13: Pauses. "I don't want to talk to you anymore."
Me: "Okay. Take care, shorty."
DD13: "I'm going to hang up on you now." Hangs up.
