双语:说说高个子女孩的烦恼

Being a tall girl has its difficult moments. Between being gawked at in public and struggling to find the perfect pair of jeans, tall people have a special set of grievances.
高个女孩儿有她们的难处。在公共场合被人傻傻盯着,想找到一条合身的牛仔裤比登天还难,这种苦只有她们自己才懂。

Let's start with the top 20:
我们来看看高个女孩儿最常见的20个烦恼:


1. That whole "fingertip length" rule in grade school was your worst nightmare.
小学时的指尖规则(指女孩子穿裙子/短裤时,裙子的长度要正好和手臂下垂时手指尖所在的腿部位置齐平或更长)是你一生的噩梦。

16. Shirt sizes -- S, M, L or XL -- mean nothing to you because they're all too short.
衣服尺寸-小码,中码,大码,加大码——对你来说这些都是浮云,因为它们对你而言都太短了。

17. Shaving your legs is not only a feat of strength and balance -- it's a true test of perseverance.
刮腿毛并不仅仅只是力气和平衡感的问题——这是对你毅力的真正考验。

18. Being a gymnast or ballerina was just NOT in your future.
