It's a ring, a very large and heavy ring.

2. People (mostly strangers!) think it's totally OK to grab your wrist and hold it up to theirs to see how small it is.

3. Wristbands are impossible, in that they never stay on...

This? Oh, it's kind of the coolest thing ever! It's a new fashion trend called, "I can't fit into any of this shit."

6. And “normal sized” jewelry just makes you look like a kid playing dress up.

7. People wrap their fingers around your wrists and say shit like, "LOL, this is ridiculous!"

Yes, we know. IT SURE IS. ::: growls :::

8. And the inevitable, “Holy shit. They’re SO SMALL.”

9. Or they hold up things that are comically tiny next to your wrist as a fun reminder.

12. The worst is when someone buys you a piece of bling for your wrist and it never, ever fits.

13. But you have to PRETEND to like it, because, well, it was a fucking gift.

Just don't buy me jewelry! I'm fine with that!

14. And you’ve definitely invested in a wrist brace, because your wrists are ~fragile~.

Sad, but true!

15. Yoga, pushups, and any exercise that depends on your wrists holding you up is a big no no.

17. Objects that are heavy for a person with a normal wrist, are damn near impossible for you to carry.

18. And at some point you've been asked, "Do you just break your wrists, like, constantly?"

instagram.com

To be fair... I've broken my wrist twice.

19. If you want a wrist tattoo, you have to make it small so that it actually fits on your wrist.

20. Your wrists have this strange superpower to fit into things that wrists aren't meant to be in.

21. And because of that, they've become a bit of a party trick, whether you like it or not.

That's an onion ring. Your wrist wears it proudly, like a beautiful fried badge of honor.

But at least you know there are some places where small wrists do have the advantage.

Looking at you: hard to reach, but incredibly delicious chips!
