If you're very very short, you might want to go into a different line of work. This is the reason there aren't many 5-year-old painters. Well, there are, actually, plenty. But they're not any good.

Look, thesis-advancing is not my strong suit, okay? I'd better hurry up and find out what my strong suit is, my window of opportunity is closing. But you know what they say, whenever God closes one window of opportunity, He looks at you through that window and points at you and laughs. that's been my experience, at least.
