this just in: one of the new admins at work couldn’t remember my name. (after only being introduced to me once, and not yet seeing my name in print, i couldn’t blame her. it’s a toughie.) she asked sarah what it was, and then said i looked like a melissa.
to me, melissas look like my stepmom, or melissa gilbert, neither of which i resemble physically, so i find this funny.
further amusement ensued when i found out that sarah thought my birthname was in fact “melissa”. now that would have been creepy.
has anyone thought you looked like you should have a different first name? if so, what was the name? how far off were they?
(and yes, i still owe you that entry about my name change. it’s coming …)
