Is it weird for short guys to be with tall girls?

Apparently, it is a problem for Tiern.

As we were strolling in the park together yesterday, a couple walked ahead of us holding hands.

Tiern: “Why is that short man with a tall lady, Dadoo?”

Mind you, we were within hearing distance, so I tried to ignore his question.

When I didn’t respond, Tiern asked the question again, but much louder.


Dadoo: “I don’t know Tiern.”

Tiern: He vents an unsatisfied “Awwk (says this when he’s frustrated) Dadoo.” And even louder “WHY IS THAT SHORT MAN WITH THAT TALL LADY?”

The couple now looking behind with slight frowns on their faces.

Dadoo (embarrassed, but trying to be diplomatic). “They look perfectly matched to me.”

Tiern: “Hugh…But why are they perfectly matched?” Struggling to understand the why this phenomenon could be possible.

Dadoo: “Well, how about we go look at the waterfall and talk about it over there.”

Tiern: “Ok.” He runs over to the waterfall, seemingly forgetting about this couples height mismatch.

If this episode is any indication, bet I’m going to have quite a few conversations with Tiern on the ways of the World.

  1. My mom was quite tall, my dad quite short. I remember being quizzed on my family drawings for years, and finding the quizzing perplexing: “That’s just how families are!”
