Best. Doppelganger. Ever.

In support of Doppelganger Week on Late Enough (just like Facebook’s, it will last all month), I am revealing my doppelgänger.  Which turned out to be the BEST. DOPPELGANGER. EVER.

I had not PLANNED to participate in Doppelganger Week on Facebook.  I could only come up with a possible kleptomaniac or a cartoon character.

Alice from Twilight Series

But my friend, C, recommended a doppelganger that I COULD NOT RESIST.

Alice from the Twilight Series!  A vampire!  A FASHIONABLE VAMPIRE!  (Of course, I’ve read the series.  I may not look like a teeny bopper anymore but I sure ACT like one.)  So up it went.

Later that week, someone from high school friend-ed me on Facebook.  I accepted and we both checked out each other’s profiles.  Are you ugly?  Do you have kids?  Do you live in some exotic place (like a small town in Connecticut)?

The next day (also known as everyday), I’m on Facebook.  But on this particular day, a chat bubble pops up:

HS Friend: Hi!  I like your hair!

Me: Thanks!  I’m growing it out so it’s at a length that I don’t usually like it but I’m ready for a change. (A change called PONYTAILS!)

(I go on about my hair for two minutes.)

HS Friend: Well it looks great!

Me: Thanks! Bye!

Ten minutes later I click on my profile page and realize that HE WAS COMPLEMENTING ALICE’S HAIR.

Best. Doppelganger. Ever.

(Sorry R.  Her hair looks WAY better than mine.)

Alex Iwashyna

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. I am having to stifle laughter while the Roo is napping for fear I'd bust a gut at the Doppleganger compliment THAT YOU ACCEPTED! Bwauahahahah! I must admit I am a tad proud of myself too. But you two TOTALLY look alike!
