My Tall Friend, and the Short Me

My Friend and I

I went out with a couple of friend for dinner on Friday, then we went to Raya mall for ice cream. Now, here’s something you should know. My friend is TALL, and I am SHORT. As we walked to find a table, ALL eyes were on us like we were some freaks, and indeed we were.

P.S. Drawing style inspired by Laialy. I would have scanned an actual drawing but I don’t have a working scanner.

  3. suspic |

    Dude, you have no idea how much I relate to this post.

    My best friend’s freakin’ tall and whenever I walk around next to him it feels like I’m his pet midget, like he should put a leash on my neck. I’m average but the bastard makes me feel like a circus freak.’d be cool if I got in his pants like how a Kangaroo mom would carry its child..but it’d be too weird.

  4. N. |

    You should try that! Heck, I should try it! Next time I’ll talk about the details with my friend! haha.

  22. Laialy_q8 |

    LoooooooooooooooooL, i love it … you should have emailed me I would’ve made one for you ^_^
    i am so proud my little drawings are growing on people

  23. Laialy_q8 |

    on another note, my cousins are very tall and i am very short, therefore, everytime we go out i have to ask what type of shoes they will be wearing to prevent any type of staring hehehe

  24. :::Shayouma:: |

    CUTE drawing!!

  25. Cat |


    How tall is he and how short u are ?!

  26. Missy-TheOriginal |

    lol @ the faces on the left =D

  27. Bojacob |

    Lol, you can say it was ME you know!

    I’m 193cm. I don’t know about him. It was pretty comical once we actually saw and digested the difference in front of a mirror.

    I almost blogged about it, but didn’t want to hurt any feelings :)

    We’ll figure out something. Maybe some stilts for you?

  28. N. |


    Aw, I would have! I didn’t know that I could have! ^_^ Thanks :D lol, yeah shoes help in your case :r

    It was also a cute scene hehe.

    As he said ^ up there, he’s 193, I’m 160.. which gives about 33 CM between the top of my head, and the top of his head. You can imagine! A tiny baby would stand on my head and would probably just barely reach his haha!

    You should have seen them :P

    I didn’t know if I should, especially that you could be spotted from the edge of Kuwait :p I was going to go for platform shoes, much more comfortable to wear. But stilts, sure.. either that. Or why don’t we find a solution for you. *grabs the axe* Don’t worry, this wont hurt much.. (not unless you want it to…)

  29. princess |

    hehehehehe 3ade 3ade u dnt need stilts or anything :p and ur little doodle thing?? aish ya3niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

  30. N. |

  35. princess |

  36. N. |

    lol! Unite, we shall!

    haha, yeah.. it came out a little wrong, but I like it, its abstract.. ahem, Picasso style!

  37. True Faith |


    Last night me and a friend decided to go out for coffee and she sent me an text message minutes before I go out “Don’t wear heels please” :P I’m tall and always on heels, and my poor friends suffer a lot from that :P

  38. Bojacob |

    Hey G, I’m surprised you were able to spell “mountain.” You’re getting smarter every day ;) You must be proud!

  39. Amethyst |

    My best friends are: 175 cm, 173 cm, and 165 cm, while I’m 153 cm. Giving them a hug is a stretch routine. Join the club;p

    So, how short are you? 150 cm short? If you’re less than 152 cm, you’re a midget.

  40. This Lady |

    I’m mean!!

  41. fadidra |

    LOOOL, priceless wish i was there ;p
    anyhow, real friends don’t judge you 7asab u’r tallness or shortness or even madre — u put something.

  42. Ri |

    Remember, dear N, that the best things in life come in small packages.

  43. N. |

    True Faith,
    lol! Did you end up wearing heels anyway? that would have been funny :p

    I am proud! xD

    Mashallah.. no I’m not a midgit, I’m a shorty I’m 160cm :p

    This Lady,
    LOL! Yes, you are!

    Yeah funny thing is, most of my very good friends are much taller than average! hehe.

  44. 'GreY' |


    reminds me of a Egyptian Couple i see at the mall , 7ft Vs 5.1 in heels !

  45. N. |

    Exactly, nothing says it better than a small package with a red ribbon. ;)

  46. N. |

    lol, I’ve seen that before. But with two guys it is not normal, hehe. 5.1 in heels is very short too hehe :D

  47. lone.rangeress |

    l9ora jad it3abir! eheh but ya who cares? wht matters is that u both had fun and had a good laf out it of it;)

  48. N. |

    yeah hehe, it was an adventurous everning!

  49. Ra7aLaH |

    LOOOL the faces ;p u him ;p ma3lih ;p

  50. N. |

    Ra7aLaH.. haha, yeah, the faces..! I seriously should have taken a picture. It was priceless.

  51. Bojacob |

    For what it’s worth, I DID glare back at them. Didn’t help much though :(

  52. N. |

    Yeah, I don’t think it helped :/

  53. Hope |

    hehe..just think of it this were both unique individuals when it comes to height..and people were just amused to see such uniqueness..

    plus..people will just stare..regardless of how tall you are..or short you are…they will still stare :P and really how would u know its the height of you two that got their you ever wonder of what a person is actually thinking when theyre staring at you?

  54. Amethyst |

    16o cm zain! You passed the midget test;p

  55. N. |

    Yeah, we couldn’t really tell what it was, we assumed it was the height because that is exactly what we’d be thinking hehe. Hmm, I don’t think we had anything on our cloths or looked weird :p


  56. KJ |


    Like my sis with a former friend of ours… he is almost double her height

  57. meeemo |

    i’d be more concerned with your “Art piece” then your height :) hehehe

  58. Sarah |

    oooooooooooh funny! Yes N u might be short, i mean not very tall but hey, remember what i told u once, when people look weird at u, just smile at them… ;)

  59. Nomad |

    LOL you should be used to that by now *wink*

  60. N. |

    lol! double! No way, unless she’s probably 1m high and still in grade school :p thats funny though hehe.

    What about it? Its very artistic! hehe

    Yeah you did! Bummer, I was smiling, I didn’t look at them though, next time enshalla ;P

    Hahah! I should, but I think he’s even taller than you by a bit, besides he’s as skinny as a piece of paper.. which makes him all the more stand out. :p

  61. Jacqui |

    Maybe they thought you were hot :P

  62. Very.Q8ya |

    mo layeg 3alek short =o]

  63. N. |

    Thing is, most of them were guys I sure hope they didn’t think that! lol!

    I used to be tall, but my heavy schoolbags made me shorter ;/
