OK, so I am wondering how you would act if people approached you in the same fashion in public with not so nice comments about your hubby's height? Please give me some advice! I would love some new funny lines to say!
I, sometimes just smile, say 6'11" and walk away. I know this may be the more Christlike response, but I have several opportunities each outing to practice. I love to say something funny back to them, but they don't think it is so funny when a question is asked of them! When people comment about his feet, size 16, I don't ask how big their booty is! Sometimes I ask how short they are. When one kid, around 16ish, wanted to take a pic of Michael with his cell, I told him to go check out the Mavs website! The funny part is that he really believed me!
My favorite questions are from cute girls asking him where he gets his clothes because their "boyfriends" are just about the same size and they can't find clothes for them! I just smile my prettiest smile!
It is funny because our girls are noticing and asking why people ask daddy how tall he is ALL OF THE TIME!
For those of you whom have ever asked us how tall he is, don't be worried or nervous! We don't mind as much if you are nice about it! The ones that annoy us the most are those who follow us around the store for 30 min trying to get courage to ask! Or those that come up and interrupt, especially if we are with a sales person or eating!
Swearing, pointing, laughing hysterically, screaming across the store, or not respecting personal space are not ways to behave!
