I, in my cramped part of the world, always manage to meet at least two of each distinct person. Lemme explain. People always leave an impression with me even as a kid: pals, bullies, class whizzes, crushes. As early in my life as college, I managed to meet someone who’s not just a dead ringer to someone I knew but acts exactly the same way, so much so that he/she tends to play the same ‘role’ as before.
At work or off-work, I’ve hooked up with I think at least three women who were exact replicas of college hotties I never got to talk to (or found the nerve.)
And then there’re the office characters. Too many to enumerate. I watched myself grow old in my office (I’m 49 now.) The work force has done more than one complete overhaul in my time and I keep meeting the “same” people. There was even one girl I talked to, I told her “you couldn’t have been that same one I met back then, it means you haven’t aged 15 years.” She kinda liked that.
