To Do:  1. Get Hobby 2. Floss

Here's what I need to do: 1. Get Hobby, 2. Floss. Blogging just gets in the way.

Dating (A Little)



It seems that some people got the wrong idea from my I'm Little post.

I am not a Little Person. I am just on the smaller side. Or perhaps I am on the large side for a Little Person. At 5'4", I could probably be a Little Person supermodel. And although my head isn't unusually large (it is a little large), I do have rather big hair. I am practically the symbol of beauty for the Little People. Too bad they kinda freak me out.

Since making this post, a dear friend of mine has decided to help me get over my little complex.

Did he make me say positive affirmations about my diminuitive size? No.

Did he tell me that people come in all shapes and sizes and that we are all God's/Allah's/Darwin's children? No.

Did he buy me a pair of orthopedic shoes? No.

My dear friend thought that what I needed was THIS. That's right. Online Little People meeting for friendship, fun, romance, and more. Lots more.

I have chatted with some really interesting Little People. And, I've met someone. We've talked politics, religion, Brittany Spears, our families...he's great. Really. There's only one problem. I lied to him. He has no idea that I'm a hulking 5 foot 4 inches. He doesn't know that my head is only slightly larger than average. I am so ashamed. I know that he'll lose interest in me when he finds out the truth. Even worse, what if he's just interested in my for my freakish body?

I guess that'd be okay, too.

He's trying to get lucky! You know...if you continue the conversation and it should perhaps lead to anything...you...uh...well...could answer a question of mine that I have wondered about little people! That would be a bonus!!

Height has nothing to do with love. Especially when you can buy a step ladder at any DIY store. :P

nihilistic,

So you want me to take one for the team?

nerd,

That is beautiful.

As long as you don't use any of the following words or phrases, you should be fine:

"Lollipop Guild"
"Midget Tossing"
"Oompa Loompa"
"Willow"
"Mini-Me"

avitable,

Noted. Although midget tossing sounds kinda sexy. As in, "I'd like to toss your midget."

 
At 5:31 AM, Blogger Cheeky said...

OMG you are among "the littles" at 5'4? OMG then that means I am too cause I am only 5'4 (and my sister is shorter than me) - OMG I am one of "the littles" and here I went through life just part of "the Indians (you know Cherokee)" - Oh wait - that means I really am a freak of nature....the little indian...

But I have a normal head so does that disqualify me?

 
At 5:47 AM, Blogger mist1 said...

cheeky,

We are the Almost Littles. We should get good parking spaces.

How could you go through life and not know about your Almost Little status? If people can hide things from you by putting them on top of the fridge you are an Almost Little.

I hope that everything goes well. I know that the internet is very decieving, and anyone that meets people over the internet, is probably aware already that there is a chance..you are not "so little"...

 
At 6:11 AM, Blogger Mindless Dribbler said...

I dont know Mist1...I think you need to come clean.

Let him know you're tall! Don't be ashamed.

I mean just because you're 6 inches taller than everyone else on that site doesn't mean there can't be a healthy relationship.

It would be their loss...screw'em.

 
At 6:13 AM, Blogger mist1 said...

ellie,

Maybe he's not little either. Wouldn't that be disappointing?

 
At 6:24 AM, Blogger mist1 said...

mindless,

Six inches without my hair. With my hair, I tower heads and torsos above them.

 
At 6:31 AM, Blogger The Stiltwalker said...

ok, sorry for laughing but this shit is hilarious. Usually the term little people refers to dwarfs. You're 5'4". I'm not seeing the correlation. And you're concerned about some "little man" not liking your appearance? hell to the no.

I'm 5'1" myself just in case it makes you feel better. But my head is a normal size.

 
At 6:35 AM, Blogger mist1 said...

stiltwalker,

I feel a little jealous when you call him "some little man." He's not just some little man, he's My Little Man.

 
At 6:41 AM, Blogger Nölff said...

I have nothing against midgets. It's the hobbits I don't like.

 
At 7:22 AM, Blogger Avitable said...

Well, "midget salad tossing" might be a turn on for certain anally inclined little people.

 
At 7:25 AM, Blogger mist1 said...

nolff,

Midget nuns in habits? Freaky.

Thanks for coming by.

 
At 7:31 AM, Anonymous KristynMarie said...

Wait, maybe I'm small too... I'm 5'5" and I always thought that was average. :)

Kristyn

 
At 7:40 AM, Blogger LoRi~fLoWer said...

We're all interested in you for your freakish body.

 
At 7:40 AM, Blogger mist1 said...

avitable,

Try living life staring at everyone's *sses. See how anally inclined you are then.

kristyn,

Sorry, you are a half inch too tall.

 
At 7:41 AM, Blogger mist1 said...

lori,

I can't decide if that boosts my self-esteem or not.

I'm thinking it does.

 
At 9:19 AM, Blogger Miss Britt said...

Do you have littleh ands? If you have little hands, that might help.

(And uh... I'm 2.25 inches SHORTER than you... you freakin amazon)

 
At 9:56 AM, Blogger mist1 said...

britt,

Actually, I have very long fingers and toes. Remember the "freakish body" thing I mentioned?

Ah, measuring in quarter-inches...I love Little People.

 
At 9:57 AM, Blogger Dallas DYSfunction said...

I'm 5'9". Can I put on a Godzilla Suit and terrorize them? It would be fun!

 
At 10:01 AM, Blogger anastasia said...

Hmmmm, I'm thinking, "little people", I've seen some interesting DVD's with them as the star, I'm going to that site you have in your post, maybe I can meet my own "little person". Of course, it'll have to be a secret.

 
At 10:35 AM, Blogger mist1 said...

dallas,

You have a mean streak. I'll get it on video.

anastasia,

I can see that you weathered the storm okay! Let me know if you find a match.

 
At 11:35 AM, Blogger Becky said...

I grew up in Hawaii, and for what it's worth, you'd actually be average-to-tall there. I'm about 5'8", so I always felt a little Amazonish.

I came by from Lori's recommendation:)

 
At 11:51 AM, Blogger Mr. G said...

Mist...

I am going to be a bigger person than any of the others that have made their little comments about your newly forming relationship and just say "Go for it". I mean, who knows...if things work out you could set up house with this guy and start a little family all your own.

 
At 11:51 AM, Blogger Odat said...

I can't remember how I got here..but your blog is very funny...thanks for the laughs~

 
At 12:08 PM, Blogger slskenyon said...

I must admit that this concept was very intriguing. I'm only about an inch to an inch and a half taller than you are, and yet, I have always disliked my height. I think that started when I noticed that my friends, Lindsay and John, both were towering over me when we were talking together in a group. Then, I started wearing heels--the great thing about heels is that it makes you look thinner, too, which I can indeed appreciate.

I'm curious to know how this turns out--a little seeming reverse psychology has sent some into the looney bin mind you....;-).

 
At 1:20 PM, Blogger K said...

ok. i don't feel so fucking little anymore. i love how i can come here and actually feel like i am important and stuff.

 
At 1:34 PM, Blogger mist1 said...

becky,

I guess I could move to Hawaii. Good suggestion.

Thanks for coming by.

mr. g,

I would be the cutest little bride ever.

odat,

Reading my blog will make you either: 1. laugh, or 2. gag.

Thanks for coming by.

slskenyon,

Lindsay and John sound like freaks. Heels are a necessity.

Thanks for coming by.

k,

Any time. I am practically like a personal coach. Now I feel all important and stuff.

 
At 3:01 PM, Blogger Darlene said...

hmmmm...I'm 5'10 and I thought I married a "little" person, because he's 5'6 - you know what they say, mist - everyone's the same height lying down ;o)

 
At 3:06 PM, Blogger littledevilworks said...

Hey now.. I'm 5'4" and while we may not be blessed with great height, we are certainly not little people. (no offense to the true little people).

Thanks for stopping by!

At 5:59 PM, Blogger mist1 said...

darlene,

I hadn't thought about it like that. Very few people are horizontally challenged.

ldw,

We could be twins.

Thanks for coming by.

 
At 6:11 PM, Blogger Michael C said...

I'm 5'5 and am the butt of all short jokes in our office. Fortunately for me, I have a plan, a master plan to get even with them all ;-)

I'm just sick of not being able to see over the office cubicles!!

 
At 6:46 PM, Blogger Nihilistic said...

Yes...Yes I want you to take one for the team...and hide a camera somewhere

 
At 7:04 PM, Blogger C said...

5'4" is not that little. I am 5'8" and I am considered tall for a woman so 4 inches less is pretty much average.

 
At 7:14 PM, Blogger mist1 said...

michael,

I love master plans. Also, it's far better to be able to see under bathroom stall doors than to be able to see over cubicles.

Thanks for coming by.

 
At 7:17 PM, Blogger mist1 said...

nihilistic,

I am not a team player. You will have to pay for the photos.

 
At 10:25 PM, Blogger old lady said...

You are not a little person at all! Sheesh.. 5'4" is a very lovely height. None of my girls are over 5'3". And they are just right! I on the other hand am 5'7" with the legs of a 6 foot person and can never find pants that are long enough. I give up over the summer and just wear capris. Wow, I just said a lot of stuff!
And you're kidding about the little people chat, right? Right Mist?

 
At 10:34 PM, Blogger mist1 said...

c,

Average? As in mediocre? Sigh.

karen,

You're right, I am a lovely height. Thanks for noticing. About the Little People chat...maybe I'm kidding.

 
At 4:47 AM, Blogger Irish Church Lady :) said...

I'm 5 4 and three quarters. I wear a size large or extra large hat. The petites stores pants are just slightly too short but the regular stores pants need to be hemmed. Do I qualify?

 
At 5:17 AM, Blogger mist1 said...

icl,

You're in!

 
At 7:53 PM, Blogger SabilaK said...

Hey, I'm a little person giant at 5'3" as well! I have my own little person (he's a real little person, like 4'-something) admirer who I cross paths with on my walk from the train station to work everyday. He must be in his 50s and he wears a yamaka and always tries to stop me and talk to me. I suspect he loves me, which leads me to suspect that little guys love little person giantesses like us. We are their supermodels.

 
At 12:55 AM, Blogger mist1 said...

sabila,

We are beautiful giantesses, aren't we? Gawd, I feel pretty right now.

 
At 2:45 PM, Blogger Matt said...

My last girl was 5'10" and she towered over most people, but the average American woman (I wonder if they're averaging all of the races) is 5'4".

I guess if you're black that'd be kind of small....

 
At 5:18 PM, Blogger mist1 said...

matt,

Dammit average again.

I prefer "cafe con leche."

Thanks for coming by.

 
At 6:18 PM, Anonymous brother john said...

Look at the bright side, short people are the last to get wet when it starts raining.

 
At 8:55 PM, Blogger mist1 said...

bro,

That is poetic.

 
At 11:19 AM, Blogger saurav said...

dude, i'm 5' 1". Even people who are racially slurring me take the time to mock my height.

5' 4" has always been a DREAM for me :)

 
At 9:20 PM, Blogger mist1 said...

saurav,

Envy me. Thanks. I feel better about myself now.

 
At 12:37 PM, Blogger Patrick D said...

There's nothing wrong with that..Just be yourself. don't mind about what they say. God loves you!

 
At 2:08 PM, Blogger mist1 said...

patrick,

Thanks.
