You Decide

Last week when I was at the Dollar Tree buying my little birdies, the cute teenage girl at the cash register was delusional. That’s all I can conclude. She asked me if anyone ever told me that I look like the girl from The Notebook. Rachel McAdams? Um, no. Nobody has ever told me that.

I thought it would be fun to do a comparison. Here is a picture of me on that day, just as the checkout girl saw me.IMG_2394

And here is Rachel McAdams. rachel mcadams If I stand back and squint, after having a few drinks (jk--I don't drink), I can kind of see a little something. Maybe. I don’t think I’ll be getting a job as a celebrity impersonator any time soon.

Honestly, I can sort of see it. I once had someone tell me I looked like Jennifer Lopez. Um, maybe in some other universe.

A few years ago I was shopping and noticed the two young women that worked in the store looking at me and whispering. One of them finally came over to me and asked if I was Julia Stiles. They didn't even just say "oh wow, you look like Julia Stiles"...they actually thought I was her! One of them even said they were contemplating whether or not to run to their car to get their camera. I don't know what those girls were on because I look nothing like her.

I can kind of see a similarity. Didn't know who she was before the picture, though :-).

Jennifer said...

You do look similar to her. I would think y'all were related.

Traci said...

Yep, I see it. I also thought the girl looked like Jennifer Garner...is that her last name?

What a nice compliment! I can see the resemblance. When I was in college, someone told me I looked like Janene Garofolo. Haha!

Rose Haven said...

Terry said...

I do see the resemblence..younger sister?? lol! That was a sweet thing she said to you!

Raise Them Up said...

That's great! I can see it too! Lol!

Sheryl said...

I can see the resemblance! When I was in college (mid-80s) I was constantly told I looked like Molly Ringwald. I even went to college near her hometown. My husband still loves to tease me about it.

Lucy Marie said...

I can see the resemblance. The same hair and nose I think. I'm sure if you had a stylist spend hours on you every day the resemblance would be even stronger.

Bonita said...

I can see it through the cheekbones and a little bit at the eyes. The hair kind of too.

I've been told I look like Kate Jackson and Demi Moore, but I don't think so.

Bonita said...

Wait a minute, I took another look. It's the shape of the face and the mouth. Look at both of your mouths- identical.

hmmmm, yea, I see a slight resemblance....BUT my camera does look JUST like yours!!! :)....and I recently had some trouble with it and Canon fixed it free. so if you have trouble with it, there is a defective part in some of the Canon Power shots (don't know how old yours is) and they will fix it free.

Tracy said...

I can see it, too! Not such a bad person to resemble, you know? The only two people I've ever been told I resemble...Annie from the Broadway musical and Bonnie Franklin from One Day at a Time (who by the way is MUCH older than me!) = )

Amanda said...

I can definitely see the resemblance! What a nice compliment. You are beautiful!
