I was trying to type in my name into my phone to find my website and realized I shared the same name (minus an L) with the President of Hersheys Company. Yep, Michele Buck is my new hero.
My name is literally linked to chocolate.
OK, not my name exactly. I’m not a career driven, smart, educated business woman running a successful company, but you might accidentally mistake me for the Hersheys’ lady if you didn’t know any better.
Well I’m not belittling myself. I’m smart too. Just not “President of Hershey Co.” smart. I am, however, a lover of all things chocolate. That’s how I maintain my girly figure.
Whenever we roast s’mores, I go straight for the bar of chocolate and forego the entire graham cracker and marshmallow. Who needs those extra calories?
And that’s why Hershey makes the big bucks (no pun intended) . People love chocolate. Being female and the President of a Fortune 500 company is pretty amazing if you ask me. But what would be more amazing is if she could hook me up with some chocolate and we could be besties. Our similarities wouldn’t have to end with just our names. We could be chocolate connoisseurs. Together.
All kidding aside, I find it interesting to find other people who share my name or the name of someone I know. It’s interesting too when you meet someone who has the same name as a famous person. There’s a lot of common names, such as “Will Smith” or “Barbara Walters” that you could find in your normal life. Reminds me of the movie Office Space where one of the workers is named “Michael Bolton”.
Samir: No one in this country can ever pronounce my name right. It’s…it’s not that hard. Na-ghee-na-na-jar. Nagheenanajar.
Michael Bolton: Yeah, well, at least your name isn’t Michael Bolton.
Samir: You know, there’s nothing wrong with that name.
Michael Bolton: There was nothing wrong with it, until I was about twelve years old and that no-talent ass clown became famous and started winning Grammys.
Samir: Hmm…well, why don’t you just uh…go by Mike instead of Michael?
Michael Bolton: No way! Why should I change? He’s the one who sucks.
For me, I’m ok with the lack of Hollywood similarities. It’s pretty much perfect that someone else has the same name as me and she loves chocolate. I’m totally ok with that. I think I’ll eat some, you know, in honor of her. Or something.
And if you are reading this, my name doppelganger, I wasn’t kidding about the chocolate hookup. I’m game if you are.
