But even at that, I NEVER EVER looked like Brooke Shields. We had a good laugh about that on the way home. Then I remembered another lookalike story I reminded the hubby about. I had forgotten this one until recently when a different offender returned to our facility. I met him on the walk. He asked me about hubby and congratulated me on my marriage. Then he told me something silly to tell hubby. After this brief exchange I started to walk away and he said, "Bye Xena!" I turned to say adios but got confused. When I saw his face, he was grinning. Then I remembered. He was one of many offenders who told me many years ago that I looked just like Xena the Princess Warrior. In fact I think he started it all. I had numerous offenders telling me I looked like her.
Offenders say obnoxious things all the time, so I wasn't offended. However, my co-workers began checking Xena out on TV. They agreed. I looked like Xena, the Princess Warrior. So I HAD to check her out. I wasn't entirely pleased. But I had to admit, even I thought I looked like Xena the Princess Warrior. (At the time, hubby, who wasn't even thought about as a prospective futuristic date, thought I looked like Xena.)
I was dating a man who even agreed. I looked like Xena the Princess Warrior.
The funny thing? She's definitely not one I would pick to be a twin. Insanely, I think somehow, some way, we are kindred spirits. Me and Xena that is...
