I'm Insulted AND Tagged All At the Same Time

A couple days ago my sister Ryann and
cousin Luke were discussing their heights.  I heard Luke say
something about 5'7″, and Ryann said she was like 5'5″.  Then they
called across the basement to me, “Hey Coie, how tall are you?” 
I groaned and mumbled, “Uh…I dunno.”  Thinking to myself, “If I
say 5'3″, I'm never gonna hear the end of it.”.  But it didn't
matter that I tried to hide it, because Lukie quickly retorted, “Of
course you don't!  You're too short to get the measuring tape off
the shelf.”  And the two of them snorted and chuckled to
themselves.  I cracked a grin because I thought it was sorta
clever, but I didn't let them see.  I just said, “Yeah yeah,

After about 30 seconds Luke said, “Aw, I'm not being mean.  I'm just teasing you, Coie.  You have a lovely height.”

So there you have it– I'm not short; I have a lovely height.

Then the same day mom told me to have some salad.  And you know
what it was loaded with?  Snow Peas.  I think she was trying
to kill me.  I love Snow Peas.  They don't like me
though.  Every time I chow down on those 100% raw green yummies,
my throat swells up and itches to the point that I nearly can't
breathe.  I don't care though.  They're so good!

Anyways, I got tagged by DOGALWAYS524, so I'll do it this time because it is sort of interesting.

1-Grab the book nearest to you and turn to page 18, and then to line 4 her user profile that she lived in TN. So, [The Old Schoolhouse Magazine Fall 2005]
2-Stretch out your left arm as far as you can. What can you touch? A mail bin that belongs to the United States Postal Service.
3-What is the last thing you watched on TV? Probably a Kings game.  We haven't had a TV for about 1-2 years.
4-without looking,guess what time it is? 1:30
5-Now look at the clock, what is the actual time? 1:26
6-with the exception of the computer what can you hear? Air Conditioner
7-When did you last step outside, what did you do? About
5 minutes ago..I peered down the driveway to catch a glimpse of the
people there, then walked to the basement, which is where I am

8-Before you started this survey what did you look at? My blog
9-What are you wearing? Khaki pants, orange striped T-shirt, and Gray Old Navy Hoodie.
10-what did you dream last night? I don't remember dreaming last night. 
11-when did you last laugh? Not too long ago.  I get quite a few laughs being an Igarashi with 5 siblings and all.
12-what is on the walls of the room you are in? There
is a sewer pipe on the wall right behind my monitor.  I hope it
never springs a leak.  Dad's TOS notes, and other odds and ends.

13-seen anything wored lately? Is
that supposed to say “weird”?  If so, yes, all the time, being an
Igarashi with 5 siblings and all.  Living in Tennessee.  With
freaky neighbors.  Like the one time I was driving to the store
and a guy was changing his pants right there on the lawn, trying to
hide behind his car door, but not succeeding.

14-What do you think of this quiz? I dunno.  I'm slightly entertained with it.  Especially that last question.
15-What is the last film or video you saw? Hoodwinked.  It's a spoof on Little Red Riding Hood.  Kinda boring.
16-If you became a multi millionaire overnight what would you buy? a boat and a goat.  And some fruit trees.  And a truck.
17-tell me something about you I do not already know? I
drool.  A lot.  My shoulders crack when I put my hair in a
ponytail, row a boat, or do push ups.  I eat Subway sandwiches
upside down. 

18-If you could change one thing in the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do? I have no idea.
19-do you like to dance? Yes, but only certain dances (swing) with certain people (My family, Kesslers)
20-Comment to George Bush? Hello, Mr. President!
21-imagine your first child is a girl, what will you call her? Israel
22-imagine your first child is a boy, what will you call him? Justice
23-would you ever consider living abroad?  You crazy?! I'm not even allowed to move to the next city when I get married.
24-What do you want God to say to you when you reach the pearly gate? Well
done my good and faithful servant.  Come in and have some Snow
Peas, which you are no longer allergic to in your glorified state.

25-5 people who must also do this quiz on their blog? None.

  1. Hey!

    I’m glad I stopped by, that was a fun read! You are a clever girl. Is that natural or passed on from a parent? The Karate Kousins, you may have heard of them, recommended your blog so I just HAD to come over and check it out. I visited a while back and read about your trip to Cali but haven’t made it back since.

    I like the music you added–way groovy! SHOOT! I just gave away the decade I was born in…oh well.

    Oh, my daughter says to inform you she LOVES your frogs.


    Traci 🙂

  2. Good for you, on being a lovely height.

    my sister: “I’m stupid.”

    my brother: *instantly* “You’re not stupid you’re pretty.”


    Your being a lovely height reminded me of that.

    Hello 🙂

    I came across your blog and found it quite interesting

    Dont be sad about your height. I am 13, I am 66 inches…well at least I think so, I am Australian so to me, I am 167 inches…never mind.


  4. Isn't Israel a boy's name?

    A lovely height, so that’s what it’s called. My sister is 17 yrs. old 5′ 0″

    I’m watching Hoodwinked while typing this. So far it’s rather entertaining but it may be that I have a low class sense of humor.

    A lovely height! What a good way to call it! Last time I was measured I was 5’1″ or 5’2″, and I’m 19. My sis is 12, and she’s taller than me, but not 5’5″ yet!
