You know what you look like, right?  Of course you do.  So do I.  Know what I look like I mean.  I do not know what YOU look like.  Unless I know you.  Anyway…

Imagine my surprise then, when I picked up ex-Pat’s copy of Newsweek from the floor of the car one morning several weeks ago, and the image on the cover looked strangely… familiar.

I couldn’t quite put my finger on it. Well, I mean, I could obviously put my finger on the cover of Newsweek, no problem.  And I knew the person on the picture was Sarah Palin.  And nothing would possibly induce me to put my finger on Sarah Palin regardless of the circumstance.

But something about this picture was troubling. It was one of those “things that make you go hmmmm”.

Suddenly, I had it.  Pat and Kelsea were in the car with me and I said:

“Oh my god, I look like Sarah Palin. Do I look like Sarah Palin??”

Kelsea, eternally helpful, said, “Actually, you kind of do.”

“How long has this been going on?” I asked her.

“I’ve always noticed it,” she said.

When my stunned self did not reply, she said, “But that means you also look like Tina Fey, because Tina Fey looks a lot like Sarah Palin.”

“Do I look like Tina Fey?” I inquired.

“Well, no, not really,” was her reply.

My ex wisely sat there, saying nothing, pretending to be concentrating very hard on the stoplight.

All I can say is, I hope no one else notices. But since I’ve decided to call the world’s attention to it in a blog post, that’s rather unlikely, now isn’t it?
