  1. Six feet, one inch.

    [pause]

    I don't like the way that sounds....

  2. Wow, Charlie--I was just thinking I wish I knew more about familiar bloggers' bodies. In the most innocent way [grin]. I'd been thinking of how everyone came back from AWP shocked at how tall you were, and how if I do make it to AWP next year, I will probably want to spend most of my time just goggling at all these people whose faces I know and whose minds I know partially but whose etc etc. (is it wrong for me to picture a strong broad chest on C.Dale?) which is a very longwinded way of putting off the fact that I'm only 5'4" AND 3/4.

  3. 5 feet, one and one-half inches. I'm short. And round. :)

    (but see, you know how there's more oxygen at lower altitudes? and you know how the brain needs oxygen to function? well, my brain gets more oxygen than the brain of a tall person gets, so.... muahaha!)

  5. 5'5"

    But I wear lots of heels because Chris is 6'8" and I used to be mistaken for his daughter. Ew.

  12. I'm five ten, unless you ask my girlfriend, who insists I'm really five nine, but I'm not! I'm five ten barefoot and can be five eleven in the right pair of tall shoes. I love tall shoes.

    I miss being taller than all the boys in grade school.

  13. Your post reminded me of something, Charles:

    When I was a freshman in high school (13 yrs. old) I was only 4' 10". I come from a family of late-growers. This was a really weird (and WELCOME) experience, at the time, but I'd almost completely forgotten about it, and about how old, forgotten friends would run into me and say, "Holy hell! When did you get taller than... wait! When did you get TALL?!"

    So odd.

  14. Anne, yes! I'm 5'2 1/2" inches. Don't forget the half! People say I look much taller ;)

  15. Charles--does anyone ever call you Chuck?--how tall are you?

    I'm 5'9" and unlike Julie, do not miss towering over all the boys since I still tower over more than a few of them. (grin) Nice to see a few tall men in this list. And hey, Em--I thought you were taller. You've got the posture of a very tall woman. (smile)

  16. ps: Charles, I love the name of your blog. Whenever I see it, I reverse it in mind: Dream with a therapist inside.

  17. I am 5'4 but everyone says I look 5'6, no one believes I am 5'4. Now the next question should really be, how wide are you?
