While reading the “heartwarming” story of Kelly Hildebrandt and Kelly Hildebrandt, the couple who met on Facebook due to some obscure similarity or other and subsequently fell into a pool of romantic gloop, I was reminded of my first forays of internet exploration into finding my own namesakes.
I was entertained to discover a UFOlogist writer, a photographer, and someone who looked like they partied a lot in Paraguay. Naturally, though, my favourite was the one above, a lass from the Centre College Cheerleading Squad in Danville, Kentucky. No such Kelly Hildebrandt shenanigans with us, though. We never made any plans to marry. Or meet.
Besides, I am far more taken by the name of her teammate – one Scarlett Parsley.
