Going with the flow.
Really dude? I'm 6'9" also and yes it has its ups and downs, but you would be happier if you ditched the been there done that attitude. Yes the dumb questions are dumb, but it is always a great icebreaker and people always want to meet me and talk to me. In the stores that I frequent, they all know me and what I want to order. I find that the attention I receive is overwhelmingly positive, and who in the world wants to be average anyway.
I had back issues as well, but regular exercise and yoga took care of that. Many people of all sizes also have back issues, so you are not unique in this regard.- Michael Jorday on On Being Tall
