I know this is not my diary but … I used to walk this ladies dog when I was about 10. She would always ask me if he had a “B.M.” I wasn’t 100% sure what she meant but would say ‘yes’ only because the dog had shat and then she would give me a quarter.
I can say this cos I dated one a couple of years ago. Well, he wasn’t technically a midget, but he was very short, and I’m not that tall, but I felt Amazonian next to him. He had the cliche short man complex going on too.
The thing that scared me the most about him wasn’t his height though, it was more that he wanted to start up a Bruce Springsteen cover band. He really believed he sounded like him, and that he would be successful at it. The whole experience drove me nuts.
Pluto is not a planet anymore because of its small mass. So if you were to extend the planet classification standards to people (for whatever reason) then a fat midget would still be a person, but an anorexic person or a child wouldn’t be.
