Travelling to the other side of the world just to see a guy who looks like me!
17.04.2013 - 17.04.2013
On Tuesday evening we went out to Newtown, just outside of Sydney, to meet my university doppelganger Brian for schooner or two of beer. A man I only know from two years of repeatedly being mistaken for him in Royal Holloways Students union. There was even a facebook group ‘Is that Will or Brian?” devoted to our common features.
On meeting him at the station Natalie said “what if you don’t recognise him?”
“Of course I’ll recognise him, he’s the handsome guy, looks just like me! Look he’s over there!”, as I pointed, Brian waved to greet us……then hugged somebody else and walked off! It was then we realised there is a third (and probably evil) twin out there!
Needless to say it was a good evening drinking beer and staring back at my own face, albeit with newly fashioned facial hair. At least I know that if I decide to grow a goatee (I’m going to grow a goatee), that the look has already been tried and tested!
