So there's a lot of things that come with being short that nobody will tell you about. But unless you have a short fairy god mother following you telling you all the weird, awkward, and uncomfortable things you'll encounter, you probably won't know about it.
There's a few weird things I've noticed over the years that people are oddly curious about. I'm going to tell you the top four questions you'll get as a short person that nobody warns you about.
1. Everyone is weirdly curious about your shoe size. I can't tell you the amount of times I get asked, sometimes daily, about how big my feet are. Women want to know my shoe size, and men want to put their foot up to mine and compare. Like, my feet match my body size. I don't get it?
2. Everyone assumes your metabolism is lighting fast and you can eat whatever you want and never work out, all because your short/tiny. Uh, no. I work out but I also I know when I need to cut back on the McDonalds. I can't eat WHATEVER I want, but I do choose to. (I should probably stop sometime, right?) And I workout. I'm a former college athlete so I actually enjoy working out, and I know my body well enough to know if that I still need to work out regardless of what I eat.
3. Everyone secretly wants to know how tall your entire family is. Like your entire family....your dad's mom's cousin's auntie. They're fascinated that you, a short tiny little thing, came from even MORE short tiny little things. Like, how do you think we got this way people!?
4. You will be asked to take some of the most awkward photos of your life. Sure. I've taken a lot of infamous photos with volleyball players and super tall basketball players, but I have random strangers ask me to take pictures with them somewhat often. Or my friends want me to take pictures next to really tall lamps or other things.
I can't make this stuff up people. It's for real! What do you guys think? Has any of this stuff happened to you!? Let me know by clicking the "comments" button above!
As always thanks for reading peeps. Stay tuned for more!

I’m 4’9” and I can definitely relate to the shoe thing and people always wanting to know how tall my parents are.

Viral photo great resemblance to Sammie a few years ago.
I am so happy I found your blog. I have never known someone with a similar body type and height as myself. I am 21 and 4’7. I am loving your fashion and store suggestions. One of my biggest struggles is finding nice shoes and wedges/heels. Right now, I buy from Aldo in size 5. I find that some size 5 shoes at other stores are just too big for me. As for the short girl stories... I’ve experienced every single thing you have mentioned. I also used to work with children who would ask me why I’m so small. I would always say “because it didn’t take much to make me perfect.” I will definitely be keeping up with your posts!
