I had expected her to gain in height, attributing her tininess
to the distant perspective of moments before, but it wasn't so.
Unfortunately, that tininess
would make these dimensions undetectable with current methods.
Note particularly the substantially smooth quality of the mid and upper bass, the gratifyingly slight magnitude of the stand-caused lower-midrange dip (250 Hz), the odd small peak around 600 Hz (which showed up consistently), and the tininess
of the post-crossover peak at 4 kHz.
Tendresse ordinaire (1973), a film of uncertain temporal narration, relates the tininess
of the characters to the vast spaces of the country that engulfs them; while in Les maudits sauvages (1971), the trapper's journey from the Indian encampment back towards civilization is simultaneously a journey from the stockades of the 17th century to the disco bars of present-day Montreal.
Well, the Micra proved roomier on the inside than we could have imagined; the hatchback and foldaway rear seats provided ample room for our possessions; and the tininess
of the car was a blessing as we found many of the back roads that we wound up on, either deliberately or accidentally, often seemed barely as wide as a double bed, making passing approaching vehicles a heart-in-the-mouth adventure on occasion.
Will the child not remember the second one better as more conforming and less disproportionate with regard to the tininess
of his mind?
