I have a unique name. When I self-google (oh, come on! Like you never!), all of the entries that come up are me.
I discovered today that there is a woman with my name living here in my rather small city and she goes to the same doctor’s office as me!! It has kind of blown my mind! How do I know this, you may well ask?!
I went to the doctor today. It’s a busy practice and I don’t really care who I see, so the doctor that I met with doesn’t know me. He looks at my belly, looks at his records, back to my belly and says “Oh… I have it on record here that you are still pregnant…”
Him: When did you have the baby?
Him: Errmmm… you *are* Ferns Fullname, aren’t you?
Me: Yes… but I’m not pregnant and have not been pregnant…
**shows me the record so I can check the name**
Me: Errmmm… ok, yes, that’s me, but you spelt my first name wrong
[I have NEVER run across anyone EVER who has the same name as me, so it did not cross my mind that it was my doppelganger!]
Him: But you’re not pregnant?
Turns out it’s NOT me! Much hilarity (set to Benny Hill theme music) ensues.
Anyway, I’m not pregnant, just thought I’d let you know.
