You stopped growing when you hit 13 but your feet went on evolving for a good five years.
And today, people don't believe you when you tell them your shoe size.
They love to remind you how out of proportion your dinky lil' body is.
Shoe shop assistants try and make out like you don't know your own size.
And when they invariably don't have your size, you try on the next best fit...which is always a mistake.
And because you're not that tall, other body parts also feel the full force of your accidents.
Everyone assumes you're the missing link between humans and sea creatures.
Walking in stilettos is your Everest.
And bowling shoes are an absolute disaster just waiting to happen.
Getting around in platforms, Timberlands, and DMs is a whole other challenge.
You find yourself being politely redirected to the men's section in trainer shops.
People expect you to deliver a lecture on genetics to explain how you got this unique leg-to-foot ratio.
