I guess I feel sorry for him because I know how hard it is to have to
reach on tippy-toes to give someone a kiss. Of course, he might like
leaning into her cleavage. <grin> I'm only 5'4", and most of the men I
know are at least five inches taller than I am, as are all my brothers.

When you have a chronic pain disease, leaning in and craning *up* can be
darn difficult. I have a good friend who's 6'5", and as much as I love
him, hugs & kisses are *not* easy!
