Smile of a short guy

How hurt he would have been when she just teased him upon his height!

He is a short guy (indeed not a dwarf), but with a cute smile.

That lady asked him, “Are you getting shorter day by day?”

He just acknowledged with his usual pleasing smile..

Again she commented, “Dwarfs are also required in this world, Right?”

Again he simply smiled…

Was he really smiling.. I donno.. 🙁

          Yes.. really it was heartbreaking. I don’t think that the lady ever thought in such an angle that the guy would be hurt. she just commented. that’s it..

    He smiles because he doesn’t care or consider those words worthy!

        Maybe you feel more for him compared to he feels for himself! If he comes to know you feel, then he will feel too 🙂 How kind 🙂

    Ab to aadat si ho gayi hai jee lene ki…
    This line of the song suits appropriately. Very well presented.

    Certain things are God gifted and we should respect that rather than ridiculing someone about it. But I guess some people forget that…

    So bad on the part of lady and what a patience that boy projects. At times it’s good to avoid those nasty people than be in useless arguments. That smile was probably the win of his will to never bothered by these kind of people 🙂

    Loved it. I am also that kind of person, yes short and always ‘put’ a smile whenever I face such a situation (yes of course, will face daily).

    Well, some people are like that – better to answer with a smile (either way) ☺️

    From a different perspective… Perhaps he was around and happy she was complementing him.. For he doesn’t occupy and waste the premium space in this world being unnecessarily tall. Why doubt his smile at all??
