My doppelganger is stalking me

I was reading blogs yesterday and I came across one(I forget where I was-forgive me please I'm 38 and frazzeled-so if it was your blog let me know and I will link up) that touched on doppelgangers.

This got me thinking-which more times than not isn't a good thing, I am always being told you look so familar, whether it's local or I'm out of town...My typical response is 'Renee Zellwegger?' Granted, now it is more Bridgette Jones than Jerry McGuire Renee but nonetheless that's my response-I never thought I could possibly have a twin or a double out there lurking in the shadows until I was at the mall in all my chin hair glory...

I stepped up to the register at American Eagle with Abby so she I could pay $50 for a pair of capri's withholesinthemforcryinoutloud, embarrassed I didn't raise her to be more thrifty and the cashier guy says 'Oh YOU'RE back' and I just stare at him confused, then he says 'weren't you just in here?'
My reply which wasn't meant to be snarky was 'well if I was can you tell me if I already bought these capris'  And he still seriously thought I had already been in there and checked out at his register and.he.was.adiment...which when I thought about it, was kinda exciting and scary at the same time...

Could there possibly be 2 of me out there-and if there is, does she have childrens that look like mine, is she married, is she rich-cause if the other me is rich, we are so trading places...all kindsa things went through my mind-then Reese stepped on my flip flop and I was yanked back into reality and a broke flip flop...nothing like walking around the mall with chin hairs and a broke flip flop, searching for your doppelganger...no wonder I never saw the other me.

So what do you think? Do you believe in doppelgangers? Is it possible? Could it be? Hogwash?

Before I go I have one little favor to ask of you-Shannon from welcome to the nut house has a bloggy friend named Kori who is going through a very difficult time, and Shannon is doing an auction Aug 11th to help raise funds for Kori and her family-if you do nothing else today PLEASE click on the link up there and go read Koris' story-

My confession for today: If Reese tells me my food sucks one more time you may be seeing me on your nightly news

  1. People always call me "Jill" which is funny because I had a roommate in college named Jill. She was blond haired, blue eyed and about 5'11". I'm 5'3", had short dark/red/purple (depended on the day) hair then and I have brown eyes. People still tell me I look like a "Jill."

    Other than that, people used to tell me I looked like Molly Ringwald (when I was younger with short, flame red hair) and Annette Benning.

    Maybe you have multiple personalities and you were in the store earlier with your "other" personality - Georgette.

  2. Have you ever read about parallel lives, most notably in Richard Bach's novels? There is another you living a slightly different life somewhere. LOL Personally, I sure hope my other me is having a blast!

  3. I think if there was 2 of me, my husband would kill himself. One of me is PLENTY!!! (Well, maybe in the bedroom 2 would be good but that's a whole different subject!)

  4. If there is someone else like me in the world they are one lucky lady.

    Perhaps not....

  5. You've been cloned. You just didn't know it. hehe.

    I've had that happen to me, too. It's hard for me to imagine someone else looking like me!

  6. I think there is someone out there just like me....just a hundred pounds lighter, 10 years younger and much much more hair than I have these days.....

  7. When I lived in Columbia, SC for grad school I was, on a weekly basis, called Erica. "Hi Erica. How are you?" "Hi Erica. Where have you been?" I'm not Erica but apparently I look like one. You should find out her name and use it when you don't want to give yours. I do. :-)

  8. I'm pretty sure there is only one of me. God couldn't be that cruel to the world at large to make two of us.......LOL!

  9. You know, I think I was at that other site that talked about doppelgangers too, cuz at first when I started your post and saw the word 'doppelganger' I thought, oh, I've already read and commented on this one. Weird. I don't remember whose blog it was though.

    I think that there are so many strange and amazing things that happen it is not outside the realm of reality to think that we could each have a doppelganger.

    Hope you are having a fabulous summer!

  10. I was at a conference once and someone I knew asked me why I had changed my outfit. I was "Huh?" Apparently, at this professional conference there was another me. I never ran into this person but I did see someone across the room that I think may have been the person. I didn't have a chance to chase her down to see for myself.

    My husband's best friend from high school dated two women who could have been twins. They also had similiar sounding names (Jan and Pam). It was always a struggle for me to remember that he was dating Pam. I used to say Hi, J-j-j Pam!
    LOL

  13. Oh if I have a doppelganger out there...I feel her pain.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Yep..I've heard that I have a doppelganger too...I wish she'd get her butt over here and clean my house!

    Thanks for sharing the link to Shannon's blog...will definitely be there on Aug 11!

  15. WTF is a dobbleganger? I mean, I'm assuming from your post it's like a body double, but where the hell did that word come from?
    Ah, you dumbass... don't you know that before you venture out to the mall you're supposed to either pluck or shave those chin hairs? I've got those, neck hairs, a mustache. Hell, I'm a frickin' ape, we'll just leave it at that.
    Btw... if you really asked the guy if you'd already bought those capris? Than heeheeheeeeeee! You funnAY!

    Justine :o )

  17. It is kinda creepy yet exciting at the same time, isn't it? I had someone tell me once that they knew someone who looked exactly like me and it definitely felt wierd. I've never bumped into her though, oddly enough. Or maybe not so oddly enough. Am I even making sense?

    ReplyDelete
  18. It is kinda creepy isn't it. You know I get that "you look so familiar" thing too all the time. Which means one of two things for me - they know my sister who despite being 10 years older then me, looks like my twin OR they've seen Sister,Sister and think I look like Tia/Tamera Mowry. Neither of which I'm really ok with. LOL

    Cute blog! :) Stopping by from SITS <3

  19. That is really weird. Maybe you have multiple personalities? Friday Fragments took a literal hold?
    I think Reese can learn to cook.

    Sending you lots of hugs,

  21. I once came face to face with my own doppelganger in the middle of the city. The hair was a bit different and she was so much more put together than me, but the facial features and 5'2" frames were identical. Was the strangest thing and we just kinda kept stealing awkward glances at eachother :)

    $50 capris with holes in them?! GAH.

  22. I'm one of those people who thinks everyone has 'twin' out there.

  23. I must be very weirdly unique because I've never been told I look like anyone. I'd like to hear YOUR opinion of the person everyone says you look like. It could be a bad situation. On the other hand, everyone remembers me AFTER I open my mouth to speak. I could never get away with making an anonymous phone call. NO ONE sounds like me. And that's my only claim to recognition.

  25. hahahahahaha! Okay, I get this all the time also... I just have one of those faces I guess... The broken flip flop made me laugh so hard, my kids do that to me all the time, but then again, I AM buying the $1 flip flops so I don't care to much hehe

  26. Can you actually read what that was in chinese in your comments? Hmmmmmm

    Anyway, about dopplegangers.... I am not sure if I want to believe there is one... but there has GOT to be one. If there is one, she is the one doing all the bad/wrong/outlandish things that I am "not" guilty of!!! Actually, once when I was in high school a teacher came up to me and said hey, congratulations on getting your picture in this magazine!!! and I looked at her perplexed... me in a magazine? YA RIGHT! She looked so serious. Next day, she brought the magazine to work just to show me. Sure enough, there was a picture of a gal who really resembled me... hairstyle down to clothes style of the time... totally freaky. You could only see her profile, but it was my profile!!! Ever since, I've been nagging my mom about secrets of my past...

  34. I believe there are some people that may resemble each of us, but that's where it ends. Just found your blog-it's fantastic! I am your most recent follower. :)

  35. I had a twin in high school. Our facial features, hair, build, everything. She went to our rival school... I dated a guy @ her school, my boyfriend and her boyfriend were friends. They both played baseball. So, in addition to us looking alike, we both wore the boyfriend's baseball jacket. People confused us all the time. I thought when I went to college it was over. Nope. Apparently (even though I never saw her) she went to the same school. People in the library, caffeteria, book store were always asking me "Weren't you just in here?" or "Why did you change clothes?" That was a little creepy.

  36. I totally have a doppelgänger! For years people have been confusing me with someone else. They look at me skeptically when I say it must have been my doppelgänger. Especially the ones that don't know what doppelgänger means.
