You're Tall

One of my best femulating moments was when I was browsing the racks at the local Nordstrom and a saleswoman nearby spoke up, "You're tall. I'm tall, too. How tall are you?"

I said, "Six foot two."

She replied, "I'm six foot one."

And she engaged me in a discussion about being a tall female. She asked me how I liked being tall when I was a girl. ("I loved it.") She admitted that she had some difficulties during her school years because of her height, but as an adult, she was happy with her height.

After we exchanged a few more words, I excused myself and walked on air for the rest of my day at the mall.

I used to worry that I could never pass because of my height. That day at the mall convinced me otherwise.

I maintained a list of famous and infamous tall women (my Famous Females of Height list) to convince myself and my readers that being a tall female was not that unusual... that there were other tall women out there and that tall girls like us can fit right in!

I regularly updated the list as you and I discovered additional tall women to add to the list, but I have not updated the list in almost a year. Personally, I no longer needed the list, so there was no urgency to update it. However, I continued to collect additions to the list and decided that the 8th anniversary of this blog would be a good time to update it.

And so I did.

Here are the ladies I added to the list today:

    At a bit over 6"-1" I am always conscious of my height when in public. I also love wearing heels. As a compromise I have a self imposed limit of 3" heels for my shoes. That being said one of my best moments happened as I was walking through the Peppermill casino in Reno last year when I was approached by a rather diminutive woman who grabbed my hand and looking up to me said, "Oh, I just admire your height, stand tall dear." I was on cloud nine for the rest of the evening.
