We, the “giants”, have a bunch of problems too, but that’s for another day maybe. Today, however, I want to give a boost to the vertically challenged!

11. Maybe this is just a child’s bed… Naaaah, somewhere out there there’s an itsy-bitsy little princess that needs a step ladder to climb into her bed every freaking day. How is this real?
