A Case of Mistaken Identity

It's almost embarassing. I mean, it happens all the time. I'll be just walking along, or standing in line at the post office and it will happen. Someone always asks!

Here's what I look like before showering and without makeup. That's actually probably a pretty fair sampling of how I look most of the time. Sorry to those I encounter on a daily basis. And to the lady who just came to my door and caught me with a carrot juice mustache.
This is me in my readers.
So, you can understand why people might come up to me and say...
"I'm thirsty." I mean, the resemblance is uncanny.
I also get told, "I'm hungry." All the time.
And at least once a day, someone comes up to me with a yogurt lid or granola bar wrapper
having mistaken me for the picture above.
And, of course, anytime I sit down I am immediately mistaken for this.


  1. Too funny!! We must look a lot alike as I am also mistaken for many of the same things. I also get mistaken for a chew toy and a kleenex.

    1. Ah, the old snot on your sleeve. Very familiar with it.

  2. Wow. You drink carrot juice???

    1. I do! It's delightful (when mixed with apples and other non-vegetable things)
