Living the Dream

Let me see is I can get this right. My oldest daughter (age 13) is . . . um, "height challenged" and always has been. Unfortunately for her, Mrs. RSI is 5'2" and so is my mother. In fact, my mother comes from a whole family of very short people. At one point, my daughter was so relatively short that, she didn't even reach 0% on the height charts at the doctor's office. As a result, my dreams of being the faher of the next Venus and Serena Williams died quickly. My main hope for her (other than being a decent person) was that she would reach 5' before she stopped. Well, the day has arrived and all my dreams have been fulfilled. Ms. Kathryn Caric measured out at precisely five feet tall today. I can now diet a happy man.

Aw!!! Congrats to Kathryn! --And to you. I am sure it was a hilarious slip up, but I am glad you can "diet" a happy man! ;)

No, I meant it. Glad you liked it. I thought people who read my posts on dieting would get a laugh.

It's absurd that your dreams center around your daughter's physical appearance. A bit contradictory for a feminist, wouldn't you say?

Maybe you missed all the the irony and self-mocking there?
