You forgot Kelly Rowland ( I really thing you look like her though)
I knew you were going to say that! I had a picture of her too, but my program was messed up so it took me too long to post it
So many thoughts ran through my head as I read this. First, how flattering to be mistaken for other gorgeous women! Then, I actually related to your experience. I lived in a town in Mozambique for many years where white people were few and far between. Anytime I left the house, I was stared at. When a friend from out of town would come visit the family, the locals would frequently ask if they were our brother or sister, since we “looked very much alike,” even though we didn’t look alike at all! Occasionally they would even say we looked like such-and-such other famous white person they’d seen on TV. Your story reminds me of one of the many reasons I’m proud to be an American – you can look like anything and be American. In the U.S., no one questions that. That’s a foreign concept in almost every other country. And that fish market story – wow. Pretty astounding.
Yes, Exactly! It is quite flattering, but so weird at the same time:) And it really is a completely foreign concept that there is no one way to *look* like an American.
