This week I was reminded of a very nice passage in The Twits. It made me think of those years when I felt embarrassed by my height; those times when I worried that I was too sticky-outy. The occasions when I’d look in the mirror and just think “bleurgh”.
If you’re feeling self-conscious, there is a solution that is easier than make-up, more constant than fashion and cheaper than therapy. Think good thoughts.
Thank you Mr Dahl. For snozzcumbers, oompa-loompas, giant balloon peaches and for just damn well hitting the nail on the head every time.
