Chin-Twin

Friday, September 01, 2006

While looking at the mirror, I had always wondered why my Co-creators had made me the way they had. My chin had always been a subject of concern (for me). Why didn’t my chin look like everybody else’s? I didn’t know how to describe it and how exactly it differed from ‘normal chins’. It was just, different.

Once in class, Abhu and I were talking about some inane things when suddenly our facial features were brought up. I don’t know why but she said my chin was….er… yes, this is what she said, ‘pointed’. Naturally, I was pretty appalled at having my chin being insulted this way! I didn’t say anything at that point because somewhere inside, a little voice told me, “Honey, you do have a strange pointed chin to be frank.”

Since then I had been gazing at myself in the mirror, wondering about all those people who could possibly have such a feature(I am a firm believer that when you have someone else to suffer with, the suffering becomes much lesser-- the we-go-down-together theory). I started noticing people’s chins very intently. I think some of them must have passed me for a moron when they found me looking fixedly at the region below their lips. Hmm… I can be very strange, you know.

One fine day, while surfing channels, I happened to see a trailer of a ReeseWitherspoon starrer. There it was!! *jumping on the couch* It was in that one second of enlightenment, of supreme illumination that I found my chin-twin!! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Reese Witherspoon is my chin-twin (sorry to Ms.Witherspoon for any bad publicity this may cause *blush blush*)!!!

I rushed to the mirror to observe my chin for about 12 minutes or so after which I confirmed, that yes indeed, she was my god-sent chin-twin.


I think these images clearly show the pointed-ness of her chin. Now, you mustn’t think I resemble her in any way whatsoever, because I don’t (unfortunate people like me can only wish!). I am pretty much a troll *sniff* to look at. Only my chin is similar to hers, this is what I think. (This is the advantage of blogging almost anonymously. People don't know the real you! *1000-watt smile*)

I might even outdo Joey at finding body-part twins. This little bit of information is for the entertainment of curious readers. My hand-twin, nose-twin and collar-bone-twin is one of my sister’s best friends, Sal(oh yes, I do have a collar-bone-twin!)(you see, both of us have lovely *vain & dreamy look* jutting collar bones).

I am signing off with a note of thanks to Ms.Witherspoon for being born with that fabulously unique (well, not so unique) chin which must be making hundreds of pointed-chinned girls around the world rest in peace that they have company!
