Faces

Do you ever have a conversation with someone and while your talking you realize that they look completely different in person than you have always visualized them?  Sometimes I will have conversations with girls from my school that I don’t know very well because I have always seen them around but never known well.  And then when I finally have a face-to-face coversation with them they look so different that I actually hardly recognize them.

This seems to happen to me all the time, especially with older people.  It is almost embarrassing because I will start a conversation with someone and then second-guess myself… perhaps I am talking to a complete stranger and not someone I know!  I was just curious to see if anyone else has these moments from time to time.

  1. YES! All the time. I met a friend of a friend a couple of days back, after hearing so much about them, and speaking to her on the phone. In person, she looks entirely different to what I expected. I wanted to say “stop talking a second, because I don’t believe you are really you, i’m leaving now, you have scared me, bye.”
