Evil Twin

A recent post by Ming reminded me of a story I have about a doppelganger.

When I was in law school, people used to confuse me with another girl in my class.

We didn't look anything alike, apart from the fact that we were both Asian.

And our personalities were very different. Let's just say that she got around a lot more than I did.

I have two stories about this girl:

Story #1:

The first month of school, a fancy local law firm hosted a reception for law students. It was at a nice hotel with a fountain in front.

Unfortunately I was unable to make it. But this girl did attend. What's more, she got totally drunk, took off her dress and jumped into the fountain, in front of a bunch of horrified lawyers.

The next day, the head of Career Services saw me in the hallway at school and said, "Well, you had a little bit too much to drink last night, didn't you?" I told her I had no idea what she was talking about. It took me weeks to convince people that it wasn't me.

Story #2:

A good friend of mine from my law school class mentioned me to another classmate. She said, "Oh, I'm going to the library to meet up with THB to study Criminal Law."

"Oh, that girl THB," said this classmate. "I don't like her. She's a big skank!"

He realized later that he meant this other girl, not me.

Story #3:

This girl made Law Review, and I didn't. NOBODY congratulated me on making Law Review.

Bah! Why didn't anyone confuse us when it was something good?

THIRTYSOMETHING (!!) year old Asian American New Yorker, lawyer, amateur musician, curious girl taking a bite out of the Big Apple. Don't mess with me - I'm short and I look demure, but I carry a big purse. And I've just embarked on the journey of married life in Manhattan.
