Well, she's not wrong.
Ashley seems really tall to me in these comics. it's only because all things are relative and she's standing next to someone who is four inches shorter than her (not counting hair), but nonetheless, she just seems really super tall to me right now and it's sorta messing with my perception of reality.
It's like when a large cat is next to a very large cat, and it makes the large cat look small, but then someone holds the large cat, and suddenly you're like "WOW! That's a big cat!"
Not that I have any experience with that exact thing.
