CK calls me "Abrasive Jones". Although to some this may not seem like a complement... (well really it's not I guess, it's more of a power name) it does describe my direct & bold demeanor. Yes, sometimes I can be insensitive along with it, but sometimes the truth hurts and people need to hear it. Too many people in this world are afraid to hurt someones feelings because they might get offended well I say it's time they heard the truth for a change and if they can't handle it - tough!
This logic often gets me into trouble and I end up apologizing a lot it seems, but at least it keeps me humble!
So... "Thumbelina" ~ It's because I'm 5 foot 3 inches and have always been the shortest of all my friends. American standards say that 5'3" is short. My childhood friends father used to call me thumblina cause I was so small. He of course was probably 6 foot +.
Thumbelina is a fairy tale about an itty bitty tiny girl and her adventures with appearance- and marriage-minded toads, moles, and cockchafers. Google it if you don't understand. She successfully avoids their intentions before falling in love with a flower-fairy prince just her size. This kinda fits me, because I fell in love with my CK... who is only a few inches taller and just my size. We are small people and we like it. Life is about living it to the fullest, not the tallest...
