All the other Moms had to crane their necks to find their kiddo in that sea of black gowns, but I’m sure Roy’s family had no problem finding HIM. Daniel says: Roy Hibbert’s a beast. Tall Paul says: I’m 6′ 6″. They missed one, hitting your head on things. Also clothing manufactures make tall versions of shirts. (XLT) Kris says: Yes, it is possible to find manufacturers of XLT polo shirts, but god forbid you’d want to buy a shirt at a concert. Joey says: The car/airplane, “do you play basketball?” and shirt sizes are spot on. One that I’d add: I always feel really awkward in conversations. I slouch a little or just sit down since I feel like I’m cowering over the people I’m talking with otherwise. And I’m not that tall. Herman says: Sex can be a challenge to get the angles to work. The weather is raining up here. I would love to buy a sports car. I rode as a passenger in a Lotus Elise – it was not an easy or comfortable task, and the T-Top had to be removed… I got bugs on my five head, and people laughed at me, so it must have been a funny thing to see with me wearing a tiny car… lol Matt says: Spot on.I have always dreamed of giving a response like “wow, you’re short, are you a jockey?” to those that say the predictable “wow, you’re tall, do you play basketball?” But I guess I am not mean enough.Airplane travel sucks, clothes don’t come in my size, I don’t fit in many cars, including a lot of SUVs (but I fit in my Honda Civic just fine, go figure), my friends and family like being able to find me in crowds.Some things they missed:Hearing about someone’s cousin’s ex-boyfriend or something who is 6’9″. And boy did he have trouble buying clothes! A good kid though, too bad it didn’t work out with the cousin, but maybe a good thing, because she looked so short next to him!Feet hanging off the bed.Ducking under everything for fear of hitting your head because you have hit it so often. I find myself ducking under things several feet higher at times.In group pictures, you like a giant if there are no other tall people.
