#6: Patterns and celebrity/Mormon look-alikes.

One of the things you ought to know about my personality is that I like to look for patterns.  I see patterns in the clouds, patterns in my socks, and patterns in the carpet at work.  Does that make me a nerd?  Absolutely.

Another pattern that I often see is common features in people's faces.  It's not like, "Hey, that guy has a nose. So do I!".  Instead, it is like when I see someone, I often think that the person is someone I already know or recognize.  For example, if Diane and I go to a restaurant (preferably someplace that serves spaghetti or chicken fingers), I always see someone that I think I recognize.  Unfortunately, I have a tendency to go ask this person if they are who I think they are or are at least to ask them if they are related to the person who I think they are (For any grammar nuts reading this blog, I know that "they" should actually read "he/she", but I like to live my life on the wild side).

Anyway, more often than not, I am wrong in assuming this person is who I think they are. At that point, the person usually thinks I'm (1) confused, (2) trying to be funny, or (3) creepy.  The point of all this is that I sometimes see common features between famous Mormons and famous celebrities.  Am I off my rocker?  I'll leave that up to you.

Let me know if there are others that you can think of.  I'm sure they are out there!
