Desperate English Housewife in Washington, chapter 112

Doppelganger in Maryland

Apparently I have a doppelganger in Maryland.

A woman at the gym was staring at me for ages, and I thought she must be admiring my new Victoria’s Secret sports bra (it is very, very nice – and super comfy!). But no, she thought I was someone else.

‘Excuse me, did you come out to California like 10 years ago with a guy named Steve and go hiking…?’

‘Um, no – 10 years ago I was living in the UK having a right old fun time doing….um, I can’t remember….’

‘Oh my, you look just like this girl who came to stay with us in California….she was about 22 or 23 and you are the spit of her and she was from here…’

The best bit about this conversation is that this woman thinks I am about 32 or 33. This is most excellent πŸ™‚

Have you seen this woman...?!

Have you seen this woman…?!

TV at the gas station

The picture says it all. You can pump gas / petrol and watch trash TV at the same time.
Incredible! You gotta love America! πŸ™‚

    Omg, WHERE can I get fuel and watch TV at the same time?!

  2. The BP station on Rt. 1 near Guilford Rd has GSTV (Gas Station TV – haha!) and decent prices too!

  3. Wait a minute – isn’t BP BRITISH Petroleum??? πŸ™‚

    All the petrol stations I go to have tv’s blaring advertisements at you – the first time it was so confusing and distracting I nearly put diesel in my non-diesel car. Remembering I have come from a full service ‘service station’ set up in Africa and Asia for 9 years – having to serve myself was overwhelming enough let alone having tv’s shouting all kinds of things at me πŸ˜‰

  5. This is such a stupid idea. What is the point? Can’t we have five minutes of peace, even to pump gas?

  6. Woah Petrol and the telly in one?
