I mentioned before in a previous post that Ted is NOT an All-Weather Dog and I meant it. Today’s weather was at times downpours of the torrential variety — no way Mr. Ted was going out in that stuff!
However, the business MUST get done and it was NOT going to get done in the house. So, we both donned hats. Ted is much cuter in his than I am in mine. When I checked my look in the mirror on the way out, I noticed something a little off-putting.
“Hey, I know that guy,” I said to myself as I looked in the mirror.
I looked on the interwebs and found myself. When I put a hat on, and leave my hair down, I look a wee bit like Michael Myers as Wayne from Wayne’s World (made famous by Saturday Night Live and the movie Wayne’s World).
When I saw my friend later, I made her take a picture so I could do a side-by-side comparison. Here it is:
I texted the image to all of my friends who are old enough to remember the sketch from the 1990s (or was it the 1980s)? Indeed, they agreed — I was the spitting image of the SNL character. One of my friends texted me back.
“That’s excellent! You look just like him! Was that on Halloween?” she asked.
“No. It was Tuesday,” I replied.
And there it is — my life in a nutshell. If I’m not making jokes, then I’m usually the butt of one, or two, or seven.
At least my dog looks adorable in hats! If we can’t laugh at ourselves, then who in the world can we laugh at?
