May I admire you again today?
I was working the customer service desk when a woman came up to me and said, “hey, I don’t want you to take this the wrong way, but can I ask you a question?”
“Sure, go ahead,” I said, ready for nothing good.
And so she asked, “Has anyone ever told you that you look like John Cryer?”
“Thank you so much!” I was ecstatic! “I haven’t been told that in years.”
And that’s true. I used to get this a lot. “You look like Ducky from Pretty in Pink.” I never saw too much of a resemblance, but lots of people have mentioned this.
Here’s the deal though, since I hadn’t heard it in so long, I figured that I must have grown out of my Ducky stage. It’s true, I gained a bit of weight and John Cryer got famous again with his show Two and a Half Men and he’s still skinny – so I look pretty much nothing like him now.
Maybe I’ve lost a few pounds in the past couple of months (or maybe it’s the lighting at work). Maybe I’ve grown back into (or shrank back into) another Ducky phase. I’m ok with that even if I don’t really see it.
