The Other Me

I'm pretty sure most everyone has googled their own name. I first started many years ago and was very surprised to learn there's another me out there! We don't look much alike but he seems happy enough.

I've been tempted many an afternoon to email him and ask about history, to see how we might be related. On the other hand, I'd imagine he's googled himself a time or two. When you enter our name, I show up all over the place first. Since he's never contacted me either, maybe that's my answer?

It's kind of spooky in that doppelganger kind of way. Like someone is using your name and likeness to live a better, more rewarding life than yours.
