Dating Laurie was my introduction to a world very different from the one Iíd grown up to. I was a good eighteen inches taller than her, so to me she seemed quite small, and lived what I assumed to be a life typical of most small people. She drove a small car. She lived in a small house. But the thing that struck me most was her kitchen: the top shelves of the cupboards were all empty! She couldnít reach them, so she didnít use them. If I was small, I think Iíd at least buy myself a little ladder.
