So in INDIANAPOLIS news today, Sandy Allen, the world’s tallest woman at 7 ft 7 in, has died at age 53. What the??? How have I lived here forever and not ever seen her? I mean, it’s not like you wouldn’t be able to spot her in a crowd.
Our adorable governor, Mitch Daniels, said that he’d met her twice, and that “then, and from a distance, I admired very much the way she handled a uniquely difficult situation with uncomplaining grace.” Our governor is like, the cutest little kermit person EVER. The kind of adorable where I TOTALLY want to put him right in my pocket, and get him out every now and then to perch him on my shoulder and feed him a saltine cracker. LOOK AT HIM.
Anyway, a really really really tall lady that our governor met twice died today. Sad.
