Tall Tales: So a Tall Girl Walks into a Bar…


I heard an interesting pick-up line a few months ago that I’ve been meaning to share it with you. I’m not really sure what to make of it… so I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Here’s how it went down:

I was out at a bar—a not so classy one, I  must admit—with a bunch of co-workers. We were all dressed up (see outfit above) from a prior business event, so naturally, I had three inch heels on (and trust me, I didn’t need the heels to be the tallest in the group).

We were laughing and having a good time when all of a sudden a stranger came up to us. He said something along the lines of noticing me from across the room because I was so tall [insert eye roll here]. He proceeded to tell me that he loves tall women and loves how tall I am. He then said, “I want to marry a tall woman becuase I don’t want scrawny kids. My mom is tall. Respect. Can I buy you a drink?”

The three thoughts that popped into my head immediately after (in order, of course!) were:

  1. Really? Did you just go there?
  2. Your mom? So weird.
  3. You’re right! It is awesome to be tall because yeah, my kids won’t be scrawny!

Anyway, I have a boyfriend so I turned him down.
