Mirror, Mirror on the Wall
Through the ups and downs of my last relationship with Mischievous Larry, I was fortunate to inherit a couple new best buds that I have remained close with post break-up. One of the lovely ladies is like a sister to him and has to split her time with he and I when she visits from San Francisco.
The first day in town, she stopped by Mischievous Larry’s house and notices photos around his place that made her question his obsession with me and wondered if he was truly over our split - even though he was the guilty culprit that ruined everything. They end up going out to lunch and all he talks about are all the various women he is dating at the moment, so she is a bit confused.
Later that evening, she met me for some drinks at a local watering hole and starts spilling all the juicy details of what she witnessed earlier in the day. She says “So, I was at Mischievous Larry’s house today and noticed he still has your picture all over his house.” I laughed it off and said “You know, you are not the first person to tell me that because apparently, his new girlfriend looks just like me.” Another friend of ours had just met the new girlfriend a couple days prior and said that her boyfriend gave her a hug thinking it was me. Awkward!
This coming from a man that has never dated a blond haired, blued eyed girl in his life. I tried to think of something clever like … “when you go blond...” but couldn’t think of one thing and just stuck to the usual “...you never go back.” I thought it was quiet peculiar for such an odd description, but when I actually saw her in person, I was insulted that anyone would say we looked anything alike. Not all blonds look the same people!!!
It most definitely begs the question... why do guys jump into relationships that fit the profile of your ex? Reggie Bush... care to answer?
