The Movie of My Life....


I had a funny thing happen to me this weekend. It has happened before - but for some reason this time it was more profound. I introduced myself and my children to a couple who we had never met before. After exchanging names and handshakes, amid the usual stream of pleasantries, the male half of the couple reached out and sweetly petted my daughter's pretty little head and said, "Where did she get all that blonde hair?" I caught myself before I could reply "Well, from me, of course!"

It was then that it hit me, not only am I not blonde, people see me as a (*gasp*) brunette anymore. Not that I have anything against brunettes - in fact, some of my favorite people are brunette (you know who you are, AMY KIEFFER!) - but me?! Apparently yes. In my transition to adulthood, nature in it's wisdom decided to make me look older, more serious, less... blonde.

So, on the heels of this realization this weekend, I found it downright fabulous that some Anonymous commenter on http://http//bettyduffy.blogspot.com/2009/01/golden-globes-2009.html cast me as Reese Witherspoon in the movie of her life. Apparently, she sees through this mask of adulthood to the me of yesteryear. I take this opportunity as SKS played by Reese Witherspoon to cast as my husband Andy Garcia. (Perhaps with a little dash of Martin Scorcese thrown in there!) Do you see it?
