    Off, So funny you mention height. I thought the same thing. I told him I remember him taller (we kind of grew up together and reconnected later. A 6 years difference and height difference are big when you are 10 and 16 lol.) and that it wouldn't work. He had a smart comeback and that was it.

    AguaV- I guess I should be more considerate and buy the BM dresses (I mean it's 5K right? LOL.) And because I feel guilty for not thinking of them before you mentioned it, I will pay for their shoes and make up too.
