I read an odd sort of article yesterday about two friends taking a road trip from London to Weimar in a Trabant.
Are you gripped ? I doubt it ..
The reason it interested me was the two friends were Will Self ( height 6’5”- the same as my brother,Richard ) and Michael Shamash ( height 3’5”- my sister Jane was 4′).
Will Self wrote ”Michael is a person of restricted height.This is a description he wouldn’t object to; small person is also acceptable ; dwarf, just about. Midget never ; it is the N word of the restricted person’s vocabulary, and should be of yours as well .”
At last someone has said it .
