Rodger Pettichord Posted October 16, 2018 Share Posted October 16, 2018 Hi all. We've gotten some interesting mileage out of the thread about meeting celebrities. Now let me pose the question in reverse. Have you ever been mistaken for a celebrity? As for me. I once was mistaken for a god. Up in northern Japan, a friend and I were walking some back roads through a farming district where Caucasians were rarely seen. Suddenly, a gaggle of very young schoolboys came running up to us almost out of their minds with excitement. My very rotund friend and I (quite bald with thick glasses) had been mistaken for two of the seven lucky gods--the god of prosperity and the god of knowledge. The knowledge god is specially dear to the kids as a patron of getting good grades. So these kids wanted to pat Walt's belly for good luck and rub my head for good grades. All in all, it was a delightful moment. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
