Being a Dwarf

When I was ten years old, I realized how short I was if I compared myself to other people. But I kept my observation to myself.

One day, I asked my mother why I was different. She told me about Achondroplasia or dwarfism. It affects about one in 25.000 people. And I have it.

My parents knew I was a dwarf when I was just 18 weeks old. They noticed my head was larger than normal babies and that I had a curved back.

As I grew older my condition became more noticeable. When I walked down the street, kids tugged on their parents’ shirts and everyone was like, “Look at her, look at her.” I used to get upset but then I just ignored people. If they started at me, I started back until they looked away.

At junior high school, things were fine because I had really good friends. At first, they had question so I explained my condition, but they understood.

I know I can’t change it. I like who I am. I will always like who I am.

After the man went home, the tiger spoke to the buffalo; “you are so big and strong. Why do you do everything the man tells you?” The buffalo answered; “oh, the man is very intelligent”.The tiger asked; “can you tell me how intelligent he is?”. “No, I can’t tell you”, said the buffalo; “but you can ask him”

So the next day the tiger asked to the man; “Can I see your intelligence?”. But the man answered; “it at home”. “Can you go and get it?” asked the tiger. “Yes” said the man; “but I am afraid you will kill my buffalo when I am gone.

Meeting a Star

On Saturday morning at 09.30, I was walking down Sunda Street, looking for a record store. A man stopped me and asked me the way to the Hyatt Hotel. I wasn’t sure exactly where it was, but I walked with him to the end of Sunda Street. He was very friendly, and his face looked so familiar. Then I remembered where the Hyatt was and told him how to get there. He thanked me and tried to give me something. I thought it was money. I said ‘no’ at first, but he really wanted to me to have it, so I took it. 

I found the record store and listened to a few records. D’ Masive had a new record that was number two in the top twenty. I decided to buy it. I looked in may bag for my wallet and found a piece of paper the man gave me. It was a photo. I was so surprised! He was a singer in D’ Masive.

“ It’s like a brass plate, “his friend said. The blind man struck a brass plate with a stick and listened to the sound. Every time he heard a similar sound, he thought it was the sun.

His friend explained that “The sun is like a candle.” The blind man felt a candle with his hand. He believed it was the same shape as the sun.

Then his friend told him that the sun is like a great ball of fire. Later that winter, whenever the blind man sat in front of a fire, he thought it was the sun.

The sun is really quite different from all these things; but the blind man did not know this because he could not see it.

Once upon a time, there was a nervous little chipmunk. She was always afraid that something bad happened to her.

One day, she heard a little noise. It was really only an apple that fell to the ground. But the little Chipmunk was afraid and said “The sky is falling in.” Then she ran away as fast as she could go.

Soon she met an old brother Chipmunk, who asked, “Where are you running to, little Chipmunk?”  And the little Chipmunk answered, “The sky is falling in, and I am running away.” “The sky is falling in?” said the old brother Chipmunk. And he told the story to his brother chipmunk, until at last there were a hundred brother Chipmunks shouting, ”The sky is falling in.” Soon the larger animals heard what the Chipmunks were saying. The Deer, 127 Unit 8 - Long, Long Time Ago, There Was ... the Sheep, the Pig, the Camel, the Tiger, and the Elephant began to say, “The sky is falling in.”

Then the wise Lion heard all the noise and wanted to know what was happening. He stopped all the animals and asked, “What are you saying?” The brother Chipmunks said, “Oh we heard it from that little Chipmunk!” And the Lion said, “Little Chipmunk, what made you say that the sky was falling in?” And the little Chipmunk said, “I saw it there near the tree.”

“Well,” said the Lion, “Come with me and I will show you how something”. “Now get on my back.” The Lion took her on his back, and asked the animals to stay where they were until they returned. Then he showed the little Chipmunk that the apple had fallen to the ground. This made the noise that had made her afraid. The little Chipmunk said, “Oh, I see. The sky is not falling in.”

The Lion said, “Let’s go back and tell the other animals.” So they went back. At last all the animals knew that the sky was not falling in.
