|I would love to be so much taller. You don't know how many times I get shoved aside and stepped on, literally. And elbows. They mostly hit me in the shoulders.
Sometimes I need football gear just to get through a crowd without bruises.
And another problem: Crawl spaces. I don't have a basement, just a crawl space and the opening is not very big. Once under the house there's enough room for me to sit up so I really don't have a problem going under there. But I swear, every time he thought there might be a leak, my husband would send me to crawl under the house to check, because I was the only one who could easily get through that crawl space. And even now, guess who still is the only one who can get through it. Someday somebody is going to wake up and realize I'm gone and they'll find me somewhere under the house. Believe me, I'm very familiar with all the nooks and crannies and pipes and spiders that lurk down there.
And up a tree. 'You need to climb the maple, the cat's stuck at the top.'
'The cat can get himself unstuck. You go climb the tree.'
'The branches aren't strong enough, or are too thick, or too something, but you'll fit right through them.'
Oh yeah, I just love being the peanut.
Oh but!!! I got through the Eye of the Needle in Mammoth Cave, and was the only one who got to see the other side. Yeah!! Well, there was my daughter who was 6 at the time.
