Psyched!

The weirdest thing happened last night. I was out having dinner with some friends at this beautiful restaurant near a lake. We were waiting for some other friends to turn up so we were sitting at the bar. There was this one guy sitting next to us who looked exceedingly familiar. I didn't pay him too much attention but wondered a bit where I'd known him before. And it struck me later that he had a strong resemblance to a guy I used to date. The friend who sat next to him struck up a conversation with him, and they started talking. We were talking about something else so again, we didn't join in but I heard him talk, and again, he sounded terribly like the ex. And it was just weird because more than his resemblance to the ex, it felt like he was someone I used to know really well even though I was sure I'd never set eyes on him before.

I saw him talk and look at me. I couldn't hear a thing but my friend also turned and looked at me so I knew I was being talked about. I pretended not to notice even after the friend rejoined us later. The friend told us a bit about the 'stranger' he was talking with, which country he's from etcetera, and there I was, having all these weird, indescribable, swirling, smoky, deja-vu-type feelings because of him when my friend added 'And oh, he said his girlfriend looks just like you.'

Well, that sounds all corny and lame-assed and everything but it just felt so out of the ordinary...

Couldn't it just be that he's your ex? Too simple?

nags - I am sure I'd never seen the man before! And he said I look like his current girl, well he didn't mention anything about current or past, he said 'Girlfriend' so I just assumed it was current.

Hmm... weird. Maybe they have already started cloning people!

You should have sashayed to him and asked, 'Aapko pehle bhi kahi dehka hai?'. ROTFL!!

Maybe it was a kind of 'astral projection' (see wikipedia) where you 'tuned into' someone else's consciousness...

Clay - wow I actually thought about astral projections at the time!!!
