Day 2: American celebrity

Three people have "recognized" me since I arrived in the US. A British guy in the airport was convinced I flew out of Bristol with him ("You have a twin!"); some dude in a flannel shirt honked and waved at me enthusiastically from his car; and a woman at the mall approached me excitedly, "Do I know you? Hi!" [Exchange of questioning looks.] "Wait... No, I guess I don't." I told her about the other two people. "Well, I guess you just have that look!" Generic, I guess is what she meant.
