Who people aren't

Ever find out someone isn't who you thought they were?

No, I don't mean that they presented themselves as cool and hip and they were really losers, or that they presented themselves as honest, caring, and nice and they turned out to be a player after you stripped for them and let them diddle the parts that make you both feel good.

I mean, where you thought person X was Shirley, the girlfriend of Chad, a person you hang out with in group settings. You've had conversations with Shirley on 4 or 5 occasions over the last 8 months. But you never picked up on the fact that Shirley is someone else, and you've actually been speaking with Laurie. And now that you know Laurie isn't Shirley, you have no freaking clue as to what Laurie's connection is with anyone.

Yeah, that just happened to me. Except I changed the names so I don't have to explain to the person if this gets back to them that I don't really know who they are.

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…
