Virtual images

I shaved off my goatee a couple days ago. The most unexpected outcome of having one is being mistaken for someone else. Somewhere, out there in Boulder, is a guy who apparently looks like me – with a facial hair. Before growing it, I can recall being mistaken for someone once, and that was four years ago, and the look-alike was in Europe (I was not.). But in just, say, two months, I’ve been mistaken for someone four times, and to my knowledge, someone has mistaken someone else for me at least once. So, I’d like to find this guy! I’ve probably seen him and thought nothing of it, as somewhere in all of our psyches is the idea that we are unique. Further, my image of myself is reversed, as it’s based on my mirror image. So perhaps I should walk around with a mirror on me and look at people’s reflections.
