Height

My family, my extended family, short. No one over 6 feet tall, have a low center of gravity, close to the earth.
Except for few, myself included, that tower above at holiday celebrations and get togethers. My two cousins and I, tall as skyscrapers, find people across the room. Tall like mountains compared to hills.
The skyscrapers sway above, looking down onto the people. In family basketball games, the tall people perform like NBA players against 7th graders. Swatting shots like flies and a flyswatter.
