i must seriously have a twin...

Everywhere I go, it seems that people are coming up and telling me that I look exactly like someone they know or something like that. It's kind of interesting to think about how everyone really does say you have a twin somewhere. I almost feel like I must have septuplets (?) or something.

The other night, we were at Chili's (yum...my favorite) and this family kept staring at me. (I noticed because I kept looking at them to try and figure out exactly how they were related - I've become quite a people watcher lately). So...the teenage boy was the first one who kept looking at me - so I did the 'ol "look behind me to make sure there wasn't someone else he was staring at," but we were right by the window and all you could see were car lights outside. Then the two college-age girls started looking at me and one of them had to turn her head to actually see me. At that point, it was getting really obvious, so I mentioned it to Justin. It was really creeping me out/making me laugh at this point. Then I remembered my usual "you look just like someone I know" problem and started to understand.

Next, the mother (?) turned around (for quite a while) and just looked at me as I acted oblivious. She did a double take and then I heard her say, "well, they say that everyone has a twin," so my theory was confirmed. After this had gone on over about 10 minutes, I about lost it when one of the girls pulled out a camera! I continued to look in their direction just so they couldn't "sneak" a picture of me! I really don't know why they pulled out the camera, but it was very weird. They seemed very determined to figure out if I was indeed the person they knew, so I didn't know what lengths they would go to!! Justin dared and dared me to go up to them and say, "Here I am. Would you like to take a picture for proof?" but you all know I didn't do that - as much as I actually wanted to. Anyway...that was a fun Chili's experience I wanted to share.

Side note - I'm tired of this stupid writer's strike or whatever...we are having serious Office withdrawals!
