Making It Big
The other day, I stopped by the grocery store on my way to a friend’s party to pick up a little libation as my contribution to the festivities. I dressed up a little, wearing a pair of fun high heeled sandals for the occasion. I’m 5 ft 10 inches without heels, so I guess you could say I stand out a bit with the addition of a few inches.
As I perused the refrigerated options, a little kid – probably about five years old – rounded the corner, his eyes widening to the size of dinner plates as he caught sight of me. He ran back to his mom, who stood only a few feet away, and tugging at her skirt, pointed at me excitedly, saying, “MOM she’s HUGE!”
Some celebrities claim to be huge in Japan. Apparently, I’m huge in the grocery store.
