I'm The Boss: I had a hairdresser that used to insist I was a young Alyssa Milano. "Right there. You have her mouth and eyes!" Well evidently I didn't end up with her tits. I'm no fool. I understand this was his way of making me feel good so that I would tip him well. It fucking worked too. Because let's face it, a woman's vanity needs constant stroking.
The point is, all my life I've been told I look like someone. Even when I didn't agree, it was always someone I could be flattered by. Isn't that the nature of these kind of things? No one tells you that you look like someone ugly. "Has anyone ever told you that you look like Shrek?" "You remind me of a cross between Weird Al Yankovic and Pee-wee Herman." Yeah, it just doesn't happen.
Calling Dr. Tink: As I crossed the courtyard on my way out of math, I could hear the clicking of heels gaining from behind. I turned back to see my teacher, smiling broadly as she passed me. "You look just like that Grey's Anatomy girl." I hadn't really expected to talk to anyone last night, so unfortunately she caught me with my screensaver on. I think I stuttered out some response like, "Oh? Great show. I'm totally addicted." Clever girl. I walked toward my car, assuming she'd been referring to Izzie. Izzie, gorgeous blonde with the perfect teeth and Cupid bow lips who (might I add) I look nothing like. It didn't hit me until I was halfway home.
I related the story to Hoop, who didn't quite understand my distress over the situation.
Tink: Tell me I don't look like Meredith.
Hoop: Meredith is the star right? Who's that chick who's doing that guy who was screwing around on her with that girl?
Tink: That's Izzie.
Hoop: Well you don't look anything like her.
Tink: *Frowns* So I look like Meredith?
Hoop: *Squints* A little bit, yeah.
Tink: Do I look like Meredith when the show first started, or how she looks now? Because she's really frumpy right now and I don't want to look like her. Although she has a naturally brooding face anyway and I tend to smile a lot.
Hoop: Um...Whichever answer is the right answer.
I'll try to post some comparison pictures for you later.
Who do people say you look like?
Hopefully it's not any of these off of Olympic Trans, one of the craziest photo sites I've ever seen.
Have a great weekend all! Look for more "Doses of Tink" on Monday.
