The other day I was Panera ordering my usual, the pick two combo of chicken noodle soup and fuji apple chicken salad, and I gave my name as they call out names instead of order numbers once your food is ready to pick up.
Well, the Panera employee was like, “you look like a Katie.” And I responded with, “thanks, I guess.” But then I got to thinking, as us bloggers do when searching for some blogging material, what’s in a name? What makes me look like a Katie?
According to Wikipedia, Katie is of Greek origin and means “pure.” Well, I guess I look pure then? No, I definitely don’t think the name’s meaning has anything to do with what the person looks like. So, maybe all of us Katie’s look alike or a certain way. So I googled, famous Katie’s.
…and a lot more Katie’s that I did not recognize. Safe to say, we all do not look the same. So I guess there is nothing concrete that makes somebody look like a Katie.
But here’s the thing, I totally get what this stranger was saying. Sometimes I look at people I know, and I think, man they do/do not look like their names. I do not know exactly what it is, but there is definitely something there.
So, do you look like your name? Is there somebody you know who does NOT look like their name?
PS- Totally unrelated to my ramblings, look what I received in the mail yesterday:
Isn’t my husband the sweetest?! Seriously the most creative surprise ever!!
