  • little person

    This story takes place a few years ago, when I was attending university. Me and my friend had just had our lunchbreak. On our way to the next class, we were going down a long hallway. In the distance appeared a girl we both knew. She was accompanied by a small person. In my spontaneity I bursted out: “Susan, I didn’t know you were a mother!” As we got closer to them, my smile turned into a grimace. The little person was not a kid, but a midget. “What did you say?”, was Susans response. I didn’t respond. I did’t look at them either. As fast as I could, I passed them. My friend laughed till he cried. It took me a while to join him. Martijn – Holland
