Oh The Hilarity

Last weekend Brigitte and I were out doing a little shopping at Ross. We were in fine form, complete with head colds, very little fashion awareness, and best of - wild hair. Actually Brigitte and I look alarmingly similar and homeless when we dont tame our wild boy haircuts. Needless to say, it wasnt a pretty sight.

Somewhere between perusing bedsheets and clearance junk I became aware of a 'special' Ross employee who was paying attention to Brigitte. It started with a wave. And then a few "aren't YOU cute's" and finally ended in her walking over and wanting a high five. Brigitte was charming and silly and loved the attention - so needless to say it just egged this lady on. Soon she was asking her questions like "how old are you? whats your name? and the best one - what is mommy going to buy for you????"

I sort of ignored it (hoping she would go away) and kept on shopping. When all of a sudden out of nowhere she says to me - AH HA! I got it! I know EXACTLY who your daughter looks like! Me - nervous laughter - oh really? Who?

THAT LITTLE GIRL FROM WATERWORLD! yessss.....she could be her. They look identical.

Me: Oh really? Ill have to look her up! And then we sce-daddled out of there. Now, when I got home I forgot all about looking up the movie waterworld to see Brigittes twin. But this morning I remembered, and so I googled it up - and OH DEAR. NEARLY PEED MY PANTS!!!

I bring you: The waterworld girl and Brigitte


Go ahead. Die Laughing.

*disclaimer - from now on, I will fix Brigittes hair. NO MATTER WHAT. If for no other reason than just so we never ever look post- apocalyptic again!!!

Oh man - words can't even describe what I would be saying to that woman - Brigitte looks NOTHING like that little dirty tinkerbell swamp thing.

I love reading your posts because they are so clever and creatively written. That is a hilarous story!!

Also I wanted to say thanks for always leaving such great comments! I loved the story you shared! Did I ever meet Shelly? It seems like I may have, but maybe I just heard you talk about her alot.
Thanks again! I hope Bree can make lifelong friends like you and Shelly

Oh, I love it. My sons pretty much require monthly haircuts or else they look like children of neglect, and in the middle of that horrible mess of tears, hair, and snot every month I always wish I had cute little girls whose hair could grow and grow and grow. But then I remember that little girl hair has to be 'done' everyday, and I am still at a loss for how to 'do' my own hair, so it's probably best that I stick with little haircut-hating boys who at least require no daily maintenance :).
