Health for the Stunted

Perhaps there is an upside for those of us closer to the ground.

From a Newsweek article by Mary Carmichael:

Being 5'4" (or is it 5'3"?) has never been an issue with me, nor was it a problem for my ex-husbands (all of whom were six feet or more). The only time I find it annoying is when I'm trying to reach something on a top shelf. Simple solution, though – I have a two-step ladder that helps me get the job done.

As I tend to be personally unobtrusive by design for the most part, being "short" is actually a blessing in disguise.
