Pint-Sized Moments: The "Awkward Sandwich"

Have you ever experienced that moment where two extremely tall people stand on either side of you so that a picture can be taken? And then later on people see that picture and laugh at the at the height differences? You haven't?! Oh, well I have. Several times. More than I can remember, actually. I like to call this moment the "Awkward Sandwich."

Here is a little gallery of some of these photos. Believe me, there are more of these photos. There are probably some that I don't even know about and are floating out there in the universe, waiting to be discovered so that someone can have a laugh. Here are a few of my "favorites", if you could call them that.

I apologize for these photos in advance. Several of them were taken with pre-2006 cell phone cameras which means they are not great quality.





This final photo is my attempt at sticking it to the man. In my college days, a few friends and I were at a smoothie shop and we saw this extremely tall man. We decided to try and take a photo of me next to him, without him noticing. I promise you that he is really this tall, and I am really that short. He's probably standing only a foot in front of me, so it's not just depth perception that makes our height difference seem so huge.

Here's what we got:


 Maybe someday you can experience your own awkward sandwich. Until then, you can enjoy mine.
