Hello again. I thought it might be important to make an introduction to this blog.
The Short Book is a funny little book about being short, the science behind shortness, famous short people, and smallotry. Smallotry is discrimination against a person based on his or her short stature. I coined the term in the book. That's how important this book is.
Anyways, this is sort of an addendum, for extra short news, and to serve as a forum for short people to talk about how they have suffered. But please, no nuts. You know who you are nuts, so don't write in. Thanks. So remember, no nuts, just really irate people who remember every slight they have ever received.
There are worse things than being short. Like losing a parent, or a grandparent, or some kids, or a leg, or an arm, an eye, a bike, a piece of cake, the lottery, a soccer game, a magic pie, a sick dog, or a brick that you chiseled a pretty girl's phone number on with a rusty nail. But life is pretty long and pretty boring, so there is a lot of time to think about the ways that each and every one of us got screwed by Mother Nature, or science, or God, or whoever you personally believe totally screwed you.
And that is why us short people can be simultaneously pissed off about our lot in life, and pissed up about the advantages of being short. Pissed up means like "revved up."
I just realized I should be writing this blog as a person who is just a fan of the book. I might do that tomorrow. We all have a lot to learn.
