I noticed that Sue’s weekend prompt was on the theme of “tall”. Ben is tall (and dark and handsome). Simon was tall (and very handsome). Every other guy I’ve dated was my height (I’m tall) or shorter than I am. I love being able to look up at my lover instead of looking down on him.
But I know that height is not the most important attraction. As was true of Thumbelina…
“…even though you’re small
when your heart is full of love
you’re ten feet tall….”
But that boy from Ipanema – contradicts everything I just said. Sometimes being tall and tanned and dark and handsome is “aaaah!”
