Do You Know Me?
One of my former dance partners, Jo, has made quite an impressive career for herself as a television hostess, most notably for travel programs. I think she may be the British equivalent of the hosts for those home renovation shows we have here in the US.
It was fun being with her in public while visiting England last year, and seeing people vaguely recognize her without being able to place her. She would get that look that seems to ask, "Why do you look so familiar? Did we used to work together, or go to school together?"
I was tempted to paraphrase Phoebe from "Friends" when she discovered that her twin sister became an adult film actress and was using her name.
"You're trying to place her, aren't you?" I wanted to ask passers-by in London. "You're trying to figure out where you know her from. Well, it's from porn, you big pervert! Your recognize her from porn."
