Narcissistic. But if true, bloody hilarious!
According to Wikipedia comedian Rebel Wilson and her family spent a lot of time at NSW dog shows as she was growing up.
I know this, because
a) I bloody love her , I'm always fascinated by other people who grew up with my name. It wasn't common to be anything but a Lisa or a Sharon in my day!
b) I was googling her because of point a)
It should be noted that I spent pretty much every weekend from the age of 5 at NSW dog shows or dog related social events. I mean EVERY single weekend. When I first read that she did too I was FREAKING OUT! Same name, same life, same physique.... WOW!
But then I thought.... hannnng on a minute....
Now, while there were lots of dogs named Rebel, I have no recollection of any other children named Rebel. Particularly other chubby, funny children...
So, I have to wonder if somebody, who knew me at that time, has seen her comedic stylings and said
"Oh, I remember that chick. She was awesome at Junior Handlers... She hasn't changed a bit!"
Perhaps, using their powers of recollection they then provided said information to Wikipedia.
This may seem slightly narcissistic, but it is entirely possible. And if true, bloody hilarious!
I hope that one day our paths collide. Is it possible that the whole time there was ANOTHER Rebel, queuing up behind me at the soggy Jaffle van? That would have been cool. Someone who could relate to the taunts of "Are your parents hippies or something?" and "Hey, what's your real name? That's my dog's name ya know".
In the mean time, here's hoping there's a mix up with the royalty cheques!
