And read her pithy and fun advice below:
Dear Miss Fortune Cookie,
I’m not short, but my girlfriend is taller than me. My friends laugh about it. They call me stumpy and pat me on the head. I don’t want to go to school anymore. Should I just break up with her already?
Taller Than Average
Dear Taller than Average,
Miss Fortune Cookie says: Long legs let the heron see more than the duck.
Don’t your friends know that the average height of a model is 5’11”? Tell them there’s no way you’re going to set them up with her friends if they keep patting you on the head.
