The husband of the couple I stayed at for Shabbos: Are you shorter than my wife? I've never met anyone who is shorter than my wife.
Friend: My roommates are so picky. They're only a year older than me, but they seem so grown-up and concerned about everything.
Me: Mine are a year or two younger than me, and they are little.
Friend: They're physically smaller than you?
Me: Yes, they're midgets. No. I meant they're young.
: Oh, phew, because I wanted to be like, Eli7, you know you're pretty small. I couldn't believe that they were actually smaller than you.
