Bizarro world

Okay, I think this is a little bizarre although my husband is just shaking his head. (Come to think of it, he does that a lot around me.) Anyway, my daughter is down for Thanksgiving and brought one of her guy friends over. (What is the term for a guy your daughter is dating but isn’t exclusive with? I mean, besides ‘lucky’ because hey, my daughter is pretty special.) The bizarre thing is that I think he looks eerily like one of my old boyfriends, Stuart, who is currently featured on my website (because I haven’t gotten around to updating it to reflect that I have a new book out.)

Hmmm. There is probably a plot idea brewing about all of this. (Which is why teenagers are so valuable. If you want to write, a teenager is a must.)

The second bizarre thing–which an observant commenter pointed out and which I hadn’t realized until I’d already posted the blog–is that yes, my daughter and I are standing in the exact same position. No, that wasn’t posed for effect. She even has the same head tilt and smile. Which obviously means, dear daughter: THAT HE IS ABOUT TO DUMP YOU FOR JESSIE LIPE!

Not that any of this is making me relieve those early years . . .

  1. That is scary.(Did you stage that photo because the positions look awflly alike…)
    I’ve met a lot of people who look like other people I know, I just haven’t met my “twin.”
    Everyone is suppposed to have a twin, maybe their each others twins, “the people who say everyone has a twin” never did say that they had to be the same age…

  2. I just added this to my blog to address the point you made, Smithy Smith.

  3. Just thought I’d add my 2 cents:
    1.) Yes, I think it’s a little bit weird. Usually Mom lives vicariously through me…not the other way around…
    2.) Yes, he is lucky to hang out with me 😉

  4. This is obviously very dated, but I found great entertainment in browsing your blog. And now for my comment: *ahem*

    That is possibly one of the creepiest shirts I have ever seen (the one your daughter is wearing), because the two people on it look exactly like my mother and father. No joke. They look EXACTLY like them. Now I must get that shirt.
