I was tall for my age as a kid. The kind of tall where every adult asks if you’re going to play basketball.
People also generally assumed I was 2 years older than I was. I could ride all the scary rollercoasters when I was six.
But Mother Nature is a cruel mistress. She can giveth & she can taketh away. Puberty came early for young LT. I stopped growing at 12 or 13. I wound up a completely average 5’6″, no complaints about that. My gripe is that I have GIANT HANDS. Huge, manly things with long fingers.
My hands are about the same size as @RealTimMcBain, and he is nearly a foot taller than me.
So if you need someone to open that sticky jar of pickles, I’m your gal.
