A lot of people wish they were a smidge taller, myself included. Life is just a little bit sweeter up there. Tall people dunk basketballs. They have a perfect view at every concert. And if you can put “six-foot” or taller in your Tinder bio, then you’re swimming in first dates.
But sometimes, being tall isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. I thought economy class was uncomfortable for my puny 5’10” self — but our vertically-gifted peers have it far, far worse. As I watch these giraffe-like people attempt to fold themselves into undersized chairs and restrooms and cars, it makes me feel better about getting picked after them at the basketball game or the bar.
