I had done the usual tidying up because my house is generally presentable with a slight fluff.  My father-in-law is 6’6 and I am 5’6 and as a joke I pulled out my 1’ step stool in my kitchen for a side-by-side photo of the two of us.  I was mortified!

It’s just that my world is 5’6 and I don’t see (and can’t reach) the tops of refrigerators, range hoods, cabinets (the list goes on and on).
