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