He's Tall...I'm Short.....it just works!
I'm 5'2" and that's with my Texas hair - he's 6'5". We get "looks" when we walk through the mall...which is rare because hubby hates to shop!! But we are a sight and people ask strange questions - well, they never really come out and ask but they certainly imply that they are wondering. I just stop them and say...."we're the same height laying down". As Ron White says (the Blue Collar Comedy Tour guy - the irreverent one) "that'll shut 'er up"!
There are several advantages to being married to a tall guy....I don't have to keep a step stool in the kitchen, he can clean the ceiling fans without standing on a chair and we are pretty awesome at volleyball. Ok - he's awesome but I have a pretty good serve - alright fine....it's not all that great but WHATEVER! But - I discovered that his height is not always a blessing - at least not to ME because I had NO IDEA what was on the top of my refrigerator!! Do you know what's on top of yours? Let me tell you....if you haven't looked in over a year, well, I'll just say that if hubby and I are coming over to your house - I'll give you fair warning!
