Three Inches From Heaven by Frank Rasky

It’s a shame you’re so tall, he said. Too bad you’re so short, she said. She was a gorgeous 6-foot-tall blonde, and he was a love-smitten 5-foot-9. He was three inches from heaven.

He launched his campaign. He sent her photos of Tom Cruise draped under the arm of Katie Holmes. He bought her Manolo Blahnik heel-less shoes. He encouraged her to slouch, and taught himself how to walk on his toes.

He was a relentless dynamo of confidence, creativity, generosity, and humour.

She surrendered; they married, and she gave birth to his son. As it turned out, three was his heavenly, and lucky, number.

  1. this one made me smile, which is great because it’s past midnight and i’ve had a hell of a day. been talking to two people about their marriages, too. “He encouraged her to slouch, and taught himself how to walk on his toes.” is wonderful.
