Topanga? Yup, that’s who people used to say I looked like. You know who I’m referring to. The girl from Boy Meets World.
Sure I think she’s pretty, but come on. First, she’s white. Second, she’s got blue eyes and third we just don’t look alike.
I remember while I was in college I went to Kmart to get some supplies for a project. I was in the aisle and all of the sudden someone yells, “Topanga!!” I looked and she was staring right at me. She was freaking out and kept saying I have to find my daughter. Well ma’am, I am not Topanga so you can stop looking for her. Since I’ve dropped about 50 pounds (ok like 10) since college I have people tell me I look like Eva Mendes.
Ok people. Contrary to popular belief, all Hispanics do NOT look alike. Oh my God am I flattered? Absolutely, but let’s get real. WE LOOK NOTHING ALIKE. The only thing that I feel can compare besides our Hispanic heritage is that from behind we both have a butt to be proud of. Other than that nada. She does date a handsome tall guy and I’m married to a handsome tall guy, but that’s it. I’m not asking that the compliments quit coming in I’m just asking that maybe we evaluate who we may actually look like. Of course things could be worse and I could get compared to let’s say Sonia Sotomayor.
Not that I don’t like her, but she’s an older Hispanic Puerto Rican. All in all I’m flattered. I just had to share this since I think it’s a bit comical. I hope you guys are having a great week.
