Despite being afraid of heights my whole life, somehow at the age of 14 I learnt to stilt-walk. And as I've mentioned before, being slightly paranoid about being labelled "shortest in my class" throughout my entire school days it was fun to be really TALL for a while. But the day I fell from stilts that doubled my height ended by career as as stilt-walker. I'd scared myself enough to never get up on them again!
