My Doppelgänger is… Alice Cooper?

Many years ago, in the middle of a conversation I was having with someone, she used the word “Doppelgänger.” I burst out laughing. She looked at me like I’d just kicked her puppy.

While I was sure she had made it up, she couldn’t believe I’d never heard the word before. I guess I just wasn’t that cool back then. Like I’m so much cooler now?

Mom, and all of your friends who read my blog (thank you,) if you don’t know what it means, and that’s not a crime, it’s a word used to describe someone who could be your twin.

I have a bad habit of not removing my makeup before going to bed. So, one morning, a few months ago, I caught my reflection in the bathroom mirror and thought to myself, “Oh my God! I look just like Alice Cooper,” not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Today, before publishing this post, I decided to Google Alice Cooper one more time. I did a double-take when I saw the cover of his new double-album, “Paranormal,” which was just released on July 28th. How paranormal is it that on his double-album he’s his own Doppelgänger?
