Growing up my friend Manny’s mom was the desire of my childhood that became a reality later in life. Manny and I played basketball together and hung out all the time. His mom was latina and a dwarf. She was a dwarf of 4’2″ but had great proportions to her body. I was bound to be a giant because my parents were both over 6 feet tall and my dad was almost 7 feet tall. So at 7 years old Manny and I were hanging out at his house and his mom called me downstairs telling me my parents wanted me home. She was always wearing these heels with pantyhose no matter what she was doing. The heels were at least 4-5 inches helping her at least get to mid 4 foot range. As I came down I noticed for the first time I had seen she was in shorts with no heels or pantyhose but in tennis shoes. I remember thinking that her tennis shoes looked so little and like kid shoes. She handed me the phone when I got down there and we looked at each other and noticed I was taller than her. She laughed and said” I’m sure you will be taller than most women one day given your parents height, but I’m also sure you are shocked to already be taller than little me” I was always tall but I felt like a man for the first time in my life.
