Great Aunt Isabel


PHOTO PROMPT © Magaly Guerrero

Margret talked about her Great Aunt Isabel from the day I met her.  The matriarch of her clan had done everything, been everywhere.  Her family lived in this larger-than-life character’s enormous shadow.  Perhaps “great” was a title or description, not a generational mark.

I was nervous when I finally met her.   As we waited in the parlor, I noticed the stacks of oversized books here and there, and the random platform shoes tossed carelessly about.

When the giant of Margret’s family arrived, I went into shock.  She could barely see the table top, even seated on her stack of books.

      There are some small minded people that only take short people seriously if those short people prove how big they are in ways other than stature. Hmm, did I say that right? Thanks!

    ha ha!! I was once called intimidating in a complainy…. my manager laughed when the complaint came through – He told the person at the other end ‘have you seen her? she’s only 4ft 11’

      “Dynamite” would be a good way to describe Isabel. She obviously left a bigger impression than would be guessed by her size. And I didn’t even make any short jokes (because i know what’s good for me ;) )
