Not saying I am buying into it, just relating a story.
A few years ago I was playing blackjack at a casino. The pit boss walks up and starts a conversation like I know him...without going into details why, lol I know this is a done as a distraction to players they BELIEVE are counting cards (another thread and I plead the 5th)
Anyway, about 5 minutes into it, he says "So Eddie, is your wife still at the same firm?" I explain to him my name is not Eddie, nor am I married. His looked at me like I was kidding and even made comments how I must be drinking, etc. It took me 10 minutes of persuasion to convince this guy I was NOT Eddie, even produced my ID.
He said I looked just like him, wore the same style clothes Eddie usually does (black double brested jacket blue shirt), talked just like him, ordered the same uncommon drink as him (Blue Hawaian), and even had the same earring as him (I used to wear a silver cross earring with an onxy in the middle.) He said he has known Eddie for years, even before working at the casino.
It was pretty eerie for both of us. Again, about 3 months after that, the exact same thing happened at a mall where I was approached by a guy who said "Hey Eddie, where's the wife?"
Now I am quite sure this Eddie guy must be damn sexy looking at all
, but it isn't me.
Oh ya, and for legal purposes, I deny any association with Illuminati or Aliens.
Nor to I ever admit to doing a rather good living at being a professional blackjack player for about 2 years by counting cards....I SWEAR, honest Injun.
Yes, I joke around, but the encounters really did happen. As a side note, if I am somewhere where I choose not to use my real name (admit it guys you have all done it lol) I call myself Eddie - and was doing this BEFORE this first encounter at the casino
