Awesome moments like this make me love my tendency to steer away from sanity.

I just had a really bizarre moment. I'm sitting at the train station. I look across at the opposite platform and see a girl who looked very familiar to me. Do you want to know what my impulse reaction was?

"Holy crap, that's me!"

Ladies and gents, I'm not talking about thinking, "wow, that looks a lot like me" no, I mean "wow, how did I get over there so quickly?"

I would like to reassure everyone that this thought was incredibly fleeting and was promptly overruled by the thought "that might be the stupidest moment you've ever had."

It was the shock that went with it as well though. I was pretty terrified by the whole concept. Well, wouldn't you have been?

The really weird thing though was on closer inspection the girl was about 15 and looked nothing like me... My brain is a bizarre thing sometimes. 


  1. Are you sure it wasn't you after you'd used a time turner? Because obviously magic exists.

  2. It's people like you who encourage me to be who I am. People might think that this is a bad thing. But me? I'm grateful for you. Yes. Magic exists and I'm the star of the magic. Love you!

  3. Ha ha. Still haven't seen the new Harry Potter. Criminal! Also, I did pretty much the same thing the other day. I was opening up the shutters at work at I jumped because there was someone inside the cafe staring at me. Nearly had a heart attack before I realised it was my own reflection.

  4. That might be the best story I've heard today. Awesome.
