I have been extra large my whole life. My parents used to have to carry my birth certificate to my pee wee football games to prove to the refs I was in 6th grade even though I was six foot two. Obviously life is hard being big but there are a number of things that you hear every day that can drive you to drink. I am putting this out there so if you meet me, you wont have to ask me these questions.

    How Tall Are You?

    I'm 6'5" for your information. My favorite is when people ask me and I tell them, they'll say "no, I thought you were like 6'8". Do you think tall people would lie about this?

    Did You Play Basketball?

    They answer is no, I never played basketball. I wish I could have been really good at basketball but alas I wasn't. You gotta remember, Steph Curry looks small on an NBA court but he is still 6'3". Basketball players are next level tall.

    How Do You Fly?

    Simple answer? I live in the exit row. As a big person, traveling by car, plane, or train all will be uncomfortable. So I am always spending more money on exit row...or first class depending on how long the flight is.

    Where Do You Shop?

    Since 6th grade I have been shopping in the big and tall section of stores. Mainly at JCPenney but in the past three years I have been very loyal to Destination XL. So I know everyone wants Target to come to Quincy, but I'm hoping they get a DXL. As for shoes, it's New Balance or nothing.

    Do Your Knees Hurt?

    Yes. Yes they do. Now and always.
