Posted this sketchy comic on Tumblr and Instagram recently.

The average adult female in Canada (according to Wikipedia) is 5’4″. I’m 5’10”, which is a teensy bit taller than the average adult male here. I’m taller than both of my parents, as well as my biological mother and sister (Yes, I’m adopted. I have a blog post planned to talk about that in the near future). The only person I can blame for my height is my biological father, who, if I remember correctly, is 6’5″.

Anyway, I don’t wear high heels often, but I like to when I’m attending a wedding, anniversary, or some other special event where guests would be expected to dress up. I can walk well in them, so why not? Right?

Except then I get comments from friends and relatives to the tune of “Why are you wearing those? You don’t need them!” (Hence, the comic)

I’d probably kick my shoes off on the dance floor anyway (because come on, unless you’re wearing extremely comfortable heels, extended periods of dancing in them just aren’t happening), but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy indulging myself on special occasions.

That’s enough ranting for today though. I could carry on and go into detail about how a father-daughter dance is going to work when my Dad is 5’6″ but I suppose that’s for another post.

Until next time,
