The Owl

Every person resembles something other than themself.  I once knew a guy who looked like a frog.  And a girl who looked like Avril Lavigne.   I also knew a girl who looked like the black spy from Spy vs Spy

I have never heard that I look like anything  ever, until one snowy night in Calgary, I finally found out what I resemble. 

Here’s what happened.

My friends TJ, Dave, Chase and I were all hanging out in Chase’s basement one night, smoking pot and eating candy.   We were having a grand old-time, there were skittles, runts, gobstoppers, nerds, licorice, and diabetes was knocking on our collective doors. 

We were getting our blaze on pretty good when Chase started looking at me funny.

“Kim, did anyone ever tell you you look like an owl?”

Now, I don’t mind people saying weird things to me, in fact, I revel in it.  But I just so happened to mis-hear Chase.  And what I heard was,

“Kim, did anyone ever tell you you look like Al?”

It just so happens, that Al is the name of my dad, and none of my friends knew him, so I wondered what Al they meant.

So the whole exchange went like this,

“Kim, did anyone ever tell you you look like an owl?”

Me, “Who?”

The boys erupted in a fit of stoner laughter while I sat there with my handfuls of sugar, completely baffled.  I grew frustrated that I’d missed the joke.

“Who?! Who?!”

More laughter.

“WHO!!?!?!
