A Small World After All, and Weird…

Ever go to a party or a store and someone says to you, “Do you know who you look like?” I’m sure it has happened to you as it has happened to most of us.

Well for me it has always been that woman in American Pie. Jennifer Coolidge is her name and I didn’t really know her name until recently when someone told it to me. The first time someone told me that I looked like her was at a party a few years back, but I just thought he was trying to pick me up. Then it happened again with a group of friends, then with a deli woman at the supermarket, etc, etc, etc. Then one day I was getting my hair cut at my usual place and my hairstylist says, “Oh, by the way, have I ever told you that you look like the woman from American Pie?" And I did my usual thing and smiled and said thank you (I mean, what else do you say?) and then she says, “She comes in here to get her hair cut sometimes, too.” I turned around sharply and said "Really! " Well apparently she has family in my area. Weird …

Then, today, I was browsing the Internet and just happened to be looking up my high school alumni website and then there she was! Not only did she grow up in the same small town and attended the same high school as me, but she was also only 3 years ahead of me in High School—my sister’s class. Weirder!!!

That is weird! And I agree that you look like her. For years I've been told that I look like Cissy Spacek - I'm not sure if I see it!

I can seee Cissy Spacek. I was also thinking about someone else that you might look like but I could put my finger on it.
