I have a new friend that people seem to think I look like. I am flattered because she is beautiful, but I believe it is our height (tall), our weight (slim) and our haircuts (similar) that causes the mix-up.
I’ve lost count of how many times both men and women have stopped me on the street, saying “Hi Ann!”
But the biggest surprise of all came the other day when I was close to home, fully masked, after a long hot walk.
“Hi Ann,” shouted a woman coming toward me. “Not Ann,” I replied. Her response surprised me. “Well, you sure look like her from the eyes up.”
At a reasonable distance, I removed my mask for five seconds to show her I wasn’t Ann.
And I chuckled the rest of the way home.
