A Short meme from RevGals

A Short Friday Five

A Short meme for what was for many a shortened week:tell us about five noteworthy Short things in your life.(Be liberally imaginative.)

Short People I am that Short Person. "Short people" (words below)"The Little Man Complex"
"Little Big Man" The many shorter people than me that I met in China.

Short Hops Are we talking about the hops that go into beer? Plane hops? Hopping? I am teaching my kids the game hop scotch. And being short I sure can't hop very far.

Short Stories A good man is hard to find. Any of Ferrol Sam's stories in Ephiphany. The kid's story "Runnaway Bunny" "I'll love you forever"

Short Lists Is there such a thing? Things for me. Places to visit.

Short Stops Are we talking baseball? Derek Jeter? Not sure who the rest are. Getting gas at the gas station

Short People
Short People got no reason
Short People got no reason
Short People got no reasonTo live

They got little handsLittle eyes
They walk aroundTellin' great big lies
They got little nosesAnd tiny little teeth
They wear platform shoesOn their nasty little feet
Well, I don't want no Short People
Don't want no Short People
Don't want no Short People`Round here
Short People are just the sameAs you and I(A Fool Such As I)
All men are brothersUntil the day they die(It's A Wonderful World)
Short People got nobodyShort People got nobodyShort People got nobodyTo love
They got little baby legs
That stand so lowYou got to pick 'em up
Just to say helloThey got little carsThat go beep, beep, beep
They got little voicesGoin' peep, peep, peep
They got grubby little fingersAnd dirty little minds
They're gonna get you every time
Well, I don't want no Short PeopleDon't want no Short People
Don't want no Short People'Round here by Randy Newman

Thanks for playing! Are you saying a visit to China would make me feel taller?

Oh yes, very tall. My kids were as tall as some of the adults.
Yes, take a visit, you'll see.
There are some tall Chinese, but they are mostly short.
