Toward the beginning of the service Sunday night at church, we were doing our "turn around and say hi to all the people around you" thing, and the wee man behind me said "Hi Tall." He looked a little ethnic-ish so I thought maybe he just forgot the "I'm" in his sentence and was trying to say his name was Tol or Tawl so I said "Hi. I'm Bethany" to which he replied "Can I call you Tall?" with a big grin on his face, obviously very pleased with himself for making a tall joke. I rather firmly replied "No! You can call me Bethany" and turned around and plopped down in my seat. Too bad I couldn't think of a wittier retort. Maybe next time. Also, the funny thing is, the floor slants downwards and I was a row in front of him which meant he was on higher ground and I STILL towered over him.
