Doppleganger?

At the Decalogue Conference, I had this random woman come up and ask me if I had any family in Wisconsin. I don't, I told her. She told me I looked exactly like the band director at some high school in LaCrosse. I think she was referring to this guy. What do you think?

I'm tempted to write more about ego and identity, but I will not give in. I always take things too deep. Let's be superficial on this one.

It's not dead-on. But there is something similar there.

He's not your opposite, but he's far from your doppleganger. (Also, I love the word doppleganger, perhaps because of its German origins.)

I don't think you look like him. But he is by far a better dresser than you. That tie is slamming!
