@RepAnnWagner Maybe she was trying to spare you from the public humiliation of being so transparently ridiculous. @Harmony_Holiday @mattybrandmatty Got it. I was just genuinely confused. @Harmony_Holiday @mattybrandmatty Although technically he was at a right angle to the audience in traditional piano setup. 😎 @Harmony_Holiday @mattybrandmatty Good point.

@LisaIronTongue @arbakr While I clock in at 5’1”. @LisaIronTongue @arbakr Germans are a lot taller than a lot of us - I couldn't even find clothes to fit when I lived there. @LisaIronTongue @arbakr Same here, esp. for a shorty like me. @LisaIronTongue @arbakr That happened to me in Berlin. Great place, except seating on sofa and had to bend over just to put down wine glass. @HeldenMommy Have you tried Olga lozenges? A bit strong for some people, but clears things up amazingly.
