Who’s the Tallest?

There were once two tall children. Closely related. Identical twins in fact. But one ate only ham sandwiches and an apple washed down with a glass of cows milk, everyday, while the other ate only peas, carrots, mushrooms and nuts washed down with a glass of soya milk. One was a vegetarian but the other belonged to the class of omnivores. They were both exactly the same dimensions. They would argue over who was tallest.  In a way the facts didn’t matter.  One day, one, perhaps because of a glum feeling , or a momentary loss of concentration, or because he had just missed his bus – but he lost the argument. He accepted he was shorter than the other. Consequently, the other grew up tall; he was short.

Needless to say, with this true tall story, the short one became a best selling children’s novelist while the tall one being tall proved adept at stacking shelves in his local supermarket.
