Brittany and Nicole

Sometimes Koreans are funny. I love them, but there have been instances where I've wondered if we're living on the same planet. A while ago I was at the Paris Baguette (my favorite pastry store :o) and I was visiting with a lady who worked there. We were having a nice conversation in broken English and as I went to leave she paid me a nice compliment and said how pretty I was. I said thank you and then she added "you look like Nicole Kidman".

I almost started to laugh, but instead I restrained my laughter, thanked her again and left the store. I don't know if she's ever seen Nicole Kidman, but I'm pretty sure we look nothing alike.

I was recently talking with my good friend Tiffany Witt and she told me a similar story. A Korean friend of her husbands told her he thought she looked like Brittany Spears.

She laughed and smiled, but in the back of her mind she was thinking, "has he ever seen Brittany Spears? We look nothing alike!!" Sometimes I don't know what what's going through their heads. I have included this picture of Tiffany and I last December. We bought matching crocheted hats at a local market. I would love to know what you think. Now you can tell your friends you have a picture of Brittany Spears and Nicole Kidman in funny hats. Enjoy.
