While At The Grocery...


While at the grocery last week, I was in putting my groceries on the
conveyor belt and chatting with my cashier.  A voice from the next lane calls out...

Cashier in the next lane:  Hey!  Hey, do you know who you remind me of?

Me:  Glancing over at her to see who she's calling to.  Our eyes meet.  "Who, me?"

Cashier in the next lane:  Yes, you!  I think you look a lot like Sara Evans.

Me:  Really?  I laugh...

Cashier in the next lane:  Yeah, you know...the country music singer?

Me:  Yeah, I think I know who you mean.  Now if I could only sing like that!  I laugh again.

Cashier in the next lane:  Yeah, the resemblance is uncanny, really.

My cashier:  You know, you really do look very similar! 

Me:  Well, I only sing when I'm alone in the kitchen.  And I use a wooden spoon for a mic!

My cashier:  Laughing, "Honey, that is the cutest thing I've heard in a long time."

Me:  Yeah, and I try to moon walk like Michael Jackson, but it's best nobody else sees that either! ha ha!



So I went home at did a Google search for Sara Evans. 
 Well, I guess there's a little bit of a similarity.
It would probably help if I had professional hair, makeup and photo editing like her! ha.

Not really ready to call her my doppelganger.
And I already have a twin. (right, Brian?) hahaha.
But it was fun to look her up anyway. :)

  1. Uncanny indeed! Both beautiful! :)

    1. Oooh...strawberries...yes, you will be glad later, but today was a scorcher! What did you do with them?

    2. I think I brough home about 2 pieces of each. Maybe one will call my name for breakfast. haha.

    3. The easiest and least time consuming thing I could think of :) 7 qt. coarsely chopped berries, 2 cups sugar, 1 box dry sure jel (not cooked) stir well and let sit for 10 minutes then stir again. Freeze in serving size containers ready for lunches or snacks. I've done this with peaches (recipe on my blog) and the kids and my husband find them very refreshing. They are usually just right slushy by lunch time. The next round will have to be jam.

    4. yum...so would it kind of be like a fruit/jello/slushy kind of thing? Sounds wonderful. I guess you could throw a cup in a smoothie, too. Great idea! The strawberries are great right now!

      Delete
    5. yes they would work in a smoothie, over ice cream, angel food cake. really yummy for lots of things! It does thicken a little as it sets if the berries are cut by hand. But I already had a cramp between my shoulders from hulling them so I just chopped them today with a chopper and they were a bit more juicy than other times but I was getting desperate to be finished. ha

      Delete
    6. oh, I get those cramps, too! I hate that! Decorating those cookies last week I had it really bad. Well, I'm sure they will still be yummy. Over angelfood cake...oh, yes,..that will be wonderful this summer and so quick and easy now that the hard part is done! You come up with the best ideas!

  2. Well, I had to google "doppelganger". Although you did give a very good clue to its actual meaning, I'm still not sure if I could use it in a sentence. I wonder if I have a doppelganger out there somewhere?

    1. well, 'they' say (whoever that is!) that everyone has one! :)

    1. I tried to pick photos that really did look similar, but I think in real life we wouldn't look that much alike. I guess that cashier would disagree, though. haha.

  7. haha telling all of the wooden spoon
    As you prance around like a loon
    That is too funny I say
    And yeah the second ones looks similiar that you put on display
    But Brian might get mad
    So it's good thing it only looks the same by a tad

    1. yes, if you can't laugh at yourself
      then you might as well sit on a shelf.
      the wooden spoon is funny, I will admit
      but being alone, I can be silly for a bit.
      Maybe we could tell Brian that in our discussion
      he looks like Sarah Evans, but only by deduction!
      hahaha.

      Delete
    2. LOL I'm sure your twin
      Might not think that is a win
      And yeah why not rock out with the spoon
      As I'm a rhyming loon
      So all is well
      Just might want to stop if you hear the door bell..haha

      have to warn you if that bug bites, the rhyming is there to stay!
      You'll find yourself talking that way
      to people that don't know Pat or care to anyway.
      lol....

    2. hahaha another one bites the dust
      And is filled with the rhyming lust

  9. Oh you and Sarah could really past for sisters. The bottom picture especially shows the likeness.

    I felt a little sad when you said all but two pieces of pie were gone. I really thought they should have been matted and framed they looked so perfect for Memorial Day. But, know your Misters family must have really enjoyed them.

    One time I couldn't convince a guy I wasn't his 3rd grade teacher. She must have been really old if I looked like her when she was his grammer school teacher. I guess we all do have one of those....what ever you called it!! HaHa

    Replies
    1. haha..oh that is funny. You must have looked very much like his teacher!

      Good thing I took photos of the pies, huh! They were yummy and I think they appreciated that I tried to make them look festive. :) The apple pie was a little too runny but the others turned out great. Must have been extra juicy apples. ha.

      Delete
  10. You made me smile.
    I love it when cashier checkers hold fun conversations, back and forth like that.
    And you were front and center, right in the middle of it all.
    Usually, I get... "did ya want help out, mam?".

    And you do look like Sarah.

    1. actually, I was a little mortified...and wished she wasn't talking so loudly! But at least it was pleasant conversation. lol. :)

      I don't mind chatting with the cashier if she's able to scan items as she talks. hahaha. Sometimes I get one that has to stop while she talks...and it's usually when I'm in a hurry. lol. Those kind probably can't rub their head while patting their tummy...or walk and chew gum. haha.

    1. Moon River? LOL!!! haha...just kidding.

      Oh, anything...I like just about everything from the 60's forward. Beatles to MJ to Beyonce. But, no..don't even ask...videos will not be posted. LOL! :)

  16. Hi Betsy .. the thing I hate is - that we don't have a clue who the 'celebrity' is .. and we have to look them up .. but I can quite see the likeness. Love the thought of you moon-dancing round the kitchen with a woodspoon .. Mr MJ will be joining you on his cloud ... rock on -cheers Hilary

  18. Yes yes, there is definitely a huge resemblance.;)) Although you are prettier.;)You should go online and scan a picture into www.myheritage.com/celebrities
    to see which celebrity you resemble the most, it is a great deal of fun.;)) My celebrity is Claudia Shiffer, she comes up every time I scan a picture in, hihi.

  28. Things like this happen to my sister all the time, and I'm always the one to say, yeah right. But I can see the resemblance here, but I wouldn't say twin territory, I don't know who she is, other than what you just wrote about, but she's got nothing on ya betsy:) I always wondered what people would say if this situation happened to me, probably something like fozzy bear or something like that lol
