If the camera ever took a wide enough shot– you’d see that just about everyday I wear some kind of high-heeled shoe while I anchor. It’s just something I do.
Just today Justin Robinson, (AM reporter) who sits at the desk next to me, asked how tall I was. Solemly, I answered “About 5-foot-3 and a half”. Maria Antonia, who sits across from me, also likes to don high-footwear to make up for being vertically challenged.
While my stature is small and used to bother me, I’ve since embraced it, with nicknames like “shorty”. I can also get away with shopping in the children’s department. (Sometimes.) What I can’t do, is pass for an 8-year old and buy the children’s ticket at the movies.
But if I could pass for an 8-year-old at a restaurant, I’d eat free for life. http://www.kidsmealsdeals.com is a search engine where you type in your zipcode, and a few other basics of where you live, and instantly, a bunch of restaurants where kids under X years of age, can eat at a huge discount with an adult, or sometimes free, period!
Apparently there are 15 restaurants within 15 miles of where I live that offer kids meal deals. Hey, if you’re a mom or dad these days, and want to take your 5 Squidoos out for a meal without breaking the piggy bank, this could be a very, valuable resource.
Until next time everybody,
