2. But One Day It *All* Changed


It basically happened overnight. You woke up one day and you were 8 feet taller.

3. "Yes, Yes, I Know I'm Really Tall."


You will repeat this at least 6 times a day.

You friends, your boyfriend, people at the supermarket— nobody has any shame about asking you to reach. You're basically a human cherry picker for them.
