Pauline Williams and Me

My look- alike

You might wonder why I have chosen this image. The lady in the blue coat looks a lot like how I used to look a few years ago. I have no idea who she is, but just maybe, she is Pauline Williams.

I have travelled quite a lot in my adult life. In Ireland I was mistaken for Pauline Williams. As far as I know I have never met her, but clearly she had curly dark hair and wore spectacles. She was probably quite a party girl as it was always at parties that I was mistaken for her. I didn’t go to all that many, so I think she had a better social life than me.

I thought I had got away from her when I went to live in Kenya, and later Swaziland. On a trip across the border from Swaziland to South Africa, someone called out to me.

“Hey, Pauline! What are you doing here!”

She must have followed me across the world. So it is not inconceivable that she travelled to the US and was captured in the image above.

Over the years, out of curiosity, I have tried to find her on social media, but without success.

Pauline? Are you still around? Have you followed me to Scotland by any chance?
