Some surprising facts

1) On Friday night, after a lifetime spent scoffing at individuals who choose “Kraft Easy Mac” instead of “Kraft Incredibly Arduous to Make 10-Minute Macaroni & Cheese,” I found that easy mac is actually quite tasty, even after you’ve had about 6 pints on an empty stomach and cannot properly wield a spoon.

2) In the Lord & Taylors “Petite” section, the shirts are hung quite high on the wall. Think about that for a moment. Such a cruel, cruel joke! Damn you, Lord & Taylors, for hanging your petite things just high enough that actual short people can get them down only by jumping, and cannot get them back up at all!

58 inches and more!

I was in a Gap Kids yesterday, and I was too short to reach the pants I wanted. I asked the sales clerk to get me a boy’s 12 Plus. Upon handing it to me, she said “This is way too short for you.” I held it up to myself to see. It was, if anything, rather large and lengthy. “Really?” I said.

“Well, from here they looked like they would be too short.”

I’m not quite 59 inches high. Is that so wrong?
