Have you ever come across someone in your life that eerily resembles a person from your past? I know this has happened to me on several occasions. Of course, I tend to be paranoid, but that doesn't change the fact that it happens. Most recently, this has happened in my college math class.
I call him Punk Boy, and he looks so much like a person from my past, that my heart almost stops sometimes when I see him. I start to go into defense mode before I realize that the person I see is Punk Boy - not that creepy guy from my past. It is such a weird feeling though. The first day I saw Punk Boy, I knew then that he would haunt me to an extent.
Okay, so maybe I'm being a bit dramatic, but isn't that why they call it *creative* writing?! Besides, the main point is still true. People from your past can creep up on you when you least expect it, in the most unexpected ways...
Have you had similar experiences? How did it make you feel, and what did you end up doing about it, if anything? I want to hear YOUR story.
