Not Fair

Out of my 30 or so cousins on my dad side, 80% of them are amazons.
I stand at 5 feet 5 inches and occasionally can stretch another inch if I stand on my tippy toes.
I could do so much more if I was tall like my cousins.

I could dunk.
I could dust the top of the book shelf.
I could live out my dream of being a model.
I could see the top of men's heads when they try to pull off a comb over.

I'm surprised I've made it so far being this short. Perhaps God knew if I was taller I would be too powerful and this was his way of keeping me grounded. Literally.
