I'm an idiot. Yes, I realize that's not big news. I have thought 2 different girls were the same person for quite a bit. No, not one's that I'm having relations with though that has happened in the past. At the same time. A-w-k-w-a-r-d.
Alas, it was 2 bar patrons. One TV star. One Broadway star. Yet separated at birth! Well, in my head.
The TV star. Megan McCormick. She used to come in on occasion. Came in last night and was happy I remembered her as she's been out of town for quite some time. We chatted a bit during her dinner/drinks with friends at the bar and she even hugged me goodbye saying, "Well, suppose I'll see you in another year!" She has moved down to South America recently. After she left, a few co-workers said her name was Megan and that she hosted a travel show called Globe Trekker. Which confused me. And here's why.
Broadway star Haven Burton. Now, I know she's been coming in for a long time. When she was in the musical Rent, the cast came in a couple of times a week. After that show ended, she popped in less, but I would still see her on occasion.
I know the 2 pictures aren't great for comparison, but I'm telling you...separated at birth! They are both lovely, talented and smart women so it's certainly no insult to either.Obviously, I never talked too in depth with either of them or else my recollection might have been better. Sue me, I'm getting old.
At least I didn't say anything embarrassing to Megan last night. "Hey, will you be singing down in South America?" And I just have to remember to not say to Haven next time I see her, "So, how's the world travel?"
At least they aren't Asian. Because ALL of my people look alike and this post would have been flooded with thousands of photos. Just sayin'.
