Now that I have lived in France for a while, I pay much more attention to the people I pass on the street and in the metro. Sometimes, you will swear that you know the person who just walked past you or is sitting in the seat behind you and then quickly realize that you are in a foreign country, and the odds of that are too small to consider.
So far, I have encountered parisian lookalikes of the following people. Some of which are completely random..
Tom Cruise (I considered that it might actually be him for a moment.)
If you are reading this, Just know that you have parisian counterparts.
(Occasionally, on my way home from a bar or a club, I run into other lookalikes. The impossibility of it actually being the person I think it is doesn’t dawn on me, and by the time I realize how long I have been staring at the person, I’ve already made them extremely uncomfortable or extremely interested…..) I prefer uncomfortable – It’s very hard to talk your way out of that situation when you accidentally initiate it..
