Hey, isn’t that Matt Roloff on the right?
I am getting married in a month.
The soon-to-be Mrs. Rosenblum is pictured above, on my right.
(The 6’6″ guy in the picture, you will notice, has no one on their right. So yes, the other one is me).
The soon to be Mrs. Rosenblum is Lisa Lambden. Tall, blonde, former BBC on-air talent, former BBC executive, former director of the BBC’s national VJ project and former model.
She is British.
I am an American.
She traces her family from the British royal family as far back as 1215.
I can trace my family as far back as 2:35….pm
She is also 6 feet tall.
I am 5’6″ (on a very good day, with the wind behind me and standing up very straight indeed).
As a 6 foot tall former model, strangely, most of her friends are also 6 foot tall models or former models. (note the photo above. That was taken at the ASPCA fundraising dinner last month).
All of which makes me feel as though I am living in an episode of Little People. Big World, As one of the little people.
It doesn’t bother me. (too much). I am used to it. I have been the shortest person in the class or the room all my life.
But like many short men, I have learned to overcome the handicap.
We are getting married August 2nd, in Italy.
After that, we are honeymooning on the Isle of Elba.
Where Napoleon was exiled.
