Randy Newman must be workshopping a new lyric.
Well their sign writer for one is out sick today…

We are all sorry for whatever people missed today (I am 60″ tall.)
Ali: I’m so sorry for your affliction, and apologize for all the slings and arrows sent to you by people 11″ taller like me, and even taller than that, over your life since you stopped growing to our majestic height.
PS: Do you have any siblings who were shorter, or were you the runt of the litter?
Aw, I don’t mind. I can buy clothes in the kid’s sections!
And nope, I’m the runt; my younger sister is 5′ 8″, just a couple inches shorter than my father was. My mother was 5′ at death, but reported 4′ 11″ on other papers I’ve seen. My aunt, her sister, was an inch taller than I am, at 5′ 1″. Their brothers were regular-sized guys. I don’t know what it all means, but am pleased to absorb the slings and arrows on behalf of “Short People.” Everybody just watch your knees and ankles…

My mother was 5′ 2″ and lived to 96. My dad was 5′ 8″ and lived to 83. I’m 5′ 11″ and at almost 82, I could go any minute. You’ll probably make to to 100. Good luck!
Ha! Together we’d be 120″ tall.
The obvious comment from Randy Newman.

Yeah, that was dedicated to me a lot that year… 🌞
I used to work for a man who was the epitome of “Short People”, right down to the “platform shoes on his nasty little feet.” He looked like Charlie Callas, Capt Weird from the Andy Williams show. He was a wretched little man and being short was not his only problem. I am short in real life but tall in my mind.
I like this: “I am short in real life but tall in my mind.” May I borrow it, as I’m verbose so often?
Yes, please use it and make me proud!
