I have seen multiple articles over the last week about Elisany Silva, a 14-year-old Brazilian girl, who is 6-foot, 9-inches tall.
The article at Fox News says this about her:
Due to her abnormal height, the teen said she was forced to quit school because she became too tall to ride the bus.
I say, what? Are there not very tall boys all over the place who ride buses (especially when they are being transported to a high school basketball game)? I just think this is…weird. That’s all.
[This is in a (sort of) series about the “TOO tall” ladies (a category into which I fit with my 6-foot tall frame). First entry: “Woman, Take Off Your Heels. You are TOO Tall“.]
