I Am Over Six Feet Tall

I am over six feet tall
Life is great.

I like going to concerts
I can see everything
Even when I’m down in the crowded part.
Sometimes I lift my girlfriend on my shoulders and I feel her dampening my neck.
Nobody tries to fight me.

Bars are also fun
For similar reasons.

I’m unmarried because
I have three girlfriends and can’t choose
One is a beach volleyball player who reads Scholem
One is a tiny sexy Hawaiian who is high up at HBO
One is a Columbia student who everyone’s in love with and just won a Fulbright.

I had a really great time in high-school
And college.

It is easy for me to get a job
If I get the interview, I’m in.
I have a job, and make lots of money.
When I am done in the private sector, maybe I will enter politics
If not, maybe I will go into acting.

Walking from place to place in a busy city is an enjoyable experience

Sports are fun
I like every sport.
There’s not one sport I don’t like.

Every morning when I wake up, I feel strong, healthy, and capable.
