On being little

Yesterday while at work a co worker of mine commented on how little I am. I can't say this is the first time someone has commented on my stature. While I've become somewhat accustomed to remarks like this it always disarms me a bit. I don't see myself as little. I never have. Even when I was a child and the smallest in my classroom. (although by the fourth grade there was usually someone smaller than me).

It has caused me to ponder the whole self image thing. Does anyone really see themselves as they are? I've tried to look objectively at myself since and you know what? I still don't see "little".
