OMG! So dang funny. I loved it. I enjoyed it, put a smile on my face. I truly hope you keep writing and bringing humor to us all. Are you tall? Just asking...seems to me like you would know exactly how that Brobdingnagian felt. Good job, good story - very entertaining.

    Thank you, Anna. I appreciate the review, but I wonder why gave it a four? Is there something you found lacking? Peace, Lee

Loved the humor and the unspoken thoughts of a teenage versus Mom's Evil Eye...Ahh the wonderful pleasures of being able to put your child in his place with a simple look...Too bad they outgrow that as well. Nice flowing and humorous story. I enjoyed it!

    Thanks so much. Oh, my mother could chill my shorts with a single glance. Yes, I outgrew it--but barely.

    Thanks again. Peace, Lee

that is hysterical, and I'm counting the days until size 15 shoes gets posted. I wish you wrote movie scripts. or sit coms.
You had me convulsed over the gout and tile bit - so subtle and funny - you snuck that one in, brilliantly. Also, "me and Robin Hood."
You have a great sense of the ridiculous and a wonderful talent for turning real situations into comedy.
Bravo.

    Thanks so much, pome lover. I'd love to write scripts, but the format really bothers me. There's a flow to prose that doesn't exist in scripts. I'm waiting for someone else to adapt my prose into a screenplay. I have a feeling I'll wait a long time.
    Glad you enjoyed, my friend. Peace, Lee

This story, Evil Eyebrow of Death, is so funny and shows both Mom and Dad to be as witty as you. Being tall seems to be a double-edged sword. My father-in-law was quite tall too, and remarked how he enjoyed it more than bemoaned it. Being a coach and a church leader, he seemed to relish being the towering figure in the room or on the field.
Your humor, peppered all through the story, keeps the reader reliving his or her childhood as well.

    Thanks so much, Bill. It's true, I liked being tall, but it wasn't all skittles and beer. I try to write stories people can relate to. Sometimes, I get lucky. Thanks again. Peace, Lee

Sooooo funny. My favorite lines, hard as it is to choose, were the ones about the milk and being unAmerican and the uncles being mutants. Well done.

    Thanks so much, Shaffer. It's only in retrospect that I appreciate how funny my upbringing was. So glad you enjoyed. Peace, Lee

A great retrospect, crammed full with humor. There's nothing left to say {smiles}.

Here's a couple of highlights for me:

then again, so do stellar reviews -- Ha, ha {smiles}.

chucked my shoulder -- I've never heard of this before; it needed a quick google. I'm assuming it's an Americanism. I must remember it {smiles}.

was down with the gout. I figured that meant he was busy tiling. -- Ha, ha. I like it {smiles}.

And one spag?:

Sadly, they still fit better than this year's pants. -- As the narrative is in past tense, do you mean "fitted" here. Spag?

    Thanks so much, Alex. I'm glad you enjoyed. Yes, 'chucking shoulders' was a common practice among boys in the 50s and 60s. Kids can be sadistic. Glad I gave you a few chuckles. Peace, Lee

Mothers ... what to do about them? lol
She meant well. At least you had clean pants.
This was a very enjoyable look into your youth.
Thank you for sharing and best of luck in the contest.

Ha! The evil eyebrow of death. What a great title. Being tall certainly can be useful for those of us who are not quite there lol. I enjoyed this well-crafted piece and the humor.
God bless

A very well-written non-fiction story about growing and become the longest child in class can be terrifying or beneficial depends on the outlook. I can assure you shorter people often wish they could be a little longer.

Okay Hump, you wheedled a six out of me! This is funny enough in itself, but it also rings true in my family. My dad was 6'4". His four elder brothers were between 5'10 and 6'. Dad had to wear their hand-me-downs... including their shoes. What's not so funny is that the shoes deformed his feet... kept him out of the army until the second intake where they decided they could live with hammer toes.

    Thank you, Sallyo. I'm not above wheedling. My mother's side of the family is all Scandinavian--Vikings. My father stood 5'8". It was tough on him, having a kid who towered above. But he took it in stride. Oddly, it was my mother who thought I was a freak.
    I'm glad you enjoyed. Peace, Lee
