I’m doing some data entry project for a friend that requires looking up school websites, locating the principal name/e-mail, and PTO/PTA president name/e-mail. I came across this photo and was like “Justin Bieber is their principal?” Holy cow! I can’t be the only person who has thought this…which leads me to…
When I was in my mid-20’s, I went for an interview at a posh law firm. During Q&A with the Office Manager, she kept laughing. Finally, she apologized and inquired if I were a fan of Saturday Night Live. I indicated I hadn’t watched regularly, but was familiar with the show and some of the past characters.
This was the time Molly Shannon was fairly new to the cast and doing her Mary Catherine Gallagher skits. She said I looked just like her, one of her favorite people. She called in one of the other assistants as they were passing by, they didn’t know the name Mary Catherine, but inquired… “Is that the chick that is always falling down and showing her underwear?”
oh, great. But, who cares! It helped secure my receptionist job!
Flash forward a year, and I began dating my husband, who has the unfortunate balding gene, and resembled John Malkovich straight out of college. Oddly, when we started dating (1998/1999), around the time Rounders and Being John Malkovich movies came out- everyone had John M on the brain… so what a pair we made. 🙂 That Halloween, I found a MCG costume and people laughed and laughed especially when I smelled my armpits and did the SUPER STAR pose. Later that year, we went to Disneyland, and someone asked for my autograph, thinking I was Molly Shannon. I told them I wasn’t, but they wouldn’t believe me.
Anyway, that doesn’t come up too often any longer. However, my hubby still does resemble JM.
What about you or your friends? Perhaps someone looks like a pet?
