Doppelganger

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

Ha, Seems I can't shake my doppelganger no matter how much weight I gain.

A complete stranger stopped me today to ask me if she knew me. "You look so familiar, we must know each other." She said with a puzzled look. She was stumped, I was stumped, we were all stumped. Then I smiled and said, "Years ago, I was told by EVERYONE that I look exactly like Monica Lewinsky." This lady cupped both hands on over her mouth and gasped. "OMG, that's why you look familiar! WOW!"

Hmm... nice.



Come to think of it... I met John Irving, the Author, a few years ago. I was having him sign a book as a surprise for a friend of mine in The Netherlands. I waited in line for hours in the rain to see this man. When I reached him, all he could do was stare at me. "How bizarre," I thought to myself. I smiled and said "hi," then placed my open book in front of him. He tilted his head to the side and studied me for a very long second before signing my book. He stood up, shook my hand and held on while he stared some more. A tad bit embarrassed and taken back, I brushed a lock of hair out of my face, said "thank you" and made my way. I thought it strange, but weeks later I figured that must be what he was thinking.

LOL I suppose I'll never out grow the resemblance. emoticon

    could be worse people. She's incredibly successful now. I think she's a fashion designer or maybe it's just handbags... anywho. It's got to be hilarious for you at times.

    You are lovely! And I always thought Monica L. was a pretty, curvy young woman (apparently so did Bill Clinton)! So, take it as a compliant!
    Have a great end of your week!
    Hugs,
    Mary
    P.S. If you ever need extra money or a job you could work for an agency as a celebrity look alike!!! emoticon
