How To Grow Taller

One sunny Sunday morning I went to mom and said, “Mummy?”

“Yes dear” She said.

“I’m the shortest in my class, and all the kids tease me about it” I said between sobs.

“Well that’s not very nice is it? You shouldn’t worry about it because it’s great to be short. You can hide in small places and nobody will find you.” She explained.

“But I still wish I new how to grow taller.”  I said.

“There is plenty of ways you can grow taller.” Mum said.

“How”? I asked enthusiastically.

“Well you can wear stilts!” Said Mum.

“Ha-ha very funny, come on Mum I’m serious, I don’t like getting teased anymore.” I said.

“No I’m not kidding honey; I used to do it all the time when I was your age”

“Really?” I asked excitedly.

“Yeah, just wear long pants over them.” explained Mum.

“Thanks Mum”! I said running of to my room. The next day I went to school much taller than usual. One of my friends pointed out I had grown overnight. From that day on no one teased me about how short I was, but they started teasing me about how tall I had gotten!
