I HAD NO IDEA WHO SHE WAS
The woman approaching me was grinning and waving enthusiastically. She obviously knew me but I couldn’t place her. My mind went into panicky overdrive.
I had no idea.
“How wonderful to see you,” she said, grabbing my arm.
We were clearly good friends!
“Oh no!” she said, looking deflated. “It’s not you, is it. Well, let me tell you, you have an exact double. You are the spitting image of her. And she lives round here.”
Phew, I wasn’t going mad, but my face must have said something different, as she squeezed my arm reassuringly and added: “Oh don’t worry. She’s quite an attractive woman, your double.”
