I've always been the short one around here, having three sons who now tower over me and a husband who is taller too ( he is 5'8" ) .... I'm always asking them to reach something for me from the top of the cupboard...and when we went out recently and met some of our son's friends- yep I was the 'shortie' of the bunch.
I think I am about 5'3 - so maybe not the shortest - but certainly not very tall!
There's many a time when I have to ask a poor unsuspecting gentleman or young manager in Tescos to get the last of something that I need at the back of the top shelf- and they have the gall to put the Hello magazine on the highest shelf at our store and I can never reach it....
Having said all that - I would say I'm around about friends Deb and Karen's height - or maybe a teensy weensy weensy bit taller ?
