Things have been so heavy around here lately I wanted to lighten it up a bit.
I was at my work Christmas party Tuesday night, and mid-sentence I get asked, “Do you ever get “Blondie?”” I was confused. I thought he meant because my hair is blonde, do people call me “Blondie?” That or he was trying to say what I was talking about was dumb (blonde) stuff. Turned out he meant did anyone ever tell me I look like Deborah Harry!
“Deborah Harry!?!?!?! Isn’t she 60?!!??!!? I look SIXTY?!!??!?!” I found about 5 different ways to take his comment as an insult, when he was trying to compliment me. “NO! A YOUNG Deborah Harry!” he said. “Oh….no, no one has ever told me that,” I said.
Then last night, flicking through the channels, The Mechanic stopped on a Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher movie, Killers. “She reminds me of you…every now and then,” he said.
The only other time I’ve been told I look like a celebrity was in high school when someone told me I looked like Christina Applegate! Those were back in the days of Married…With Children!
I, of course, don’t see any of these. But I have thought others are “The spitting IMAGE!” or someone before, and I’m sure that they couldn’t see it, either.
Have you ever been told you look like a celebrity? Was it a compliment? Could you see it?
