That Awkward Moment When You Find Out You’re Internationally Famous

So, within a few days of arriving in Dublin, I’ve noticed people pointing at me and jabbering. I’m used to this by now, because by all accounts except my own, I look just like Weird Al. So I’ve brushed it off. Friday night, however, two people approached me and asked if I was from Vermont. I immediately look down at my clothes, wondering if I’m wearing an “I Heart Maple Syrup” T-shirt or something. Then they ask me if I’m Xavier Yes.

I was stunned. A few people have asked me the same question in the States, but now I’m in a different country. Not only that, but they offered to buy me dinner so we could talk, and then asked for an autograph. I walked back to my apartment in shock.

Long story short, I’m apparently internationally famous. HOW DO PEOPLE KNOW I’M A CELEBRITY IF I DON’T KNOW I’M A CELEBRITY?

I thought I had the perfect disguise.

I thought I had the perfect disguise.

I’ve told myself that I’m not going to let this go to my head, because I love breaking personal promises.

Arrogantly yours,

~Xavier Yes (and the Pavlov Team too, I guess)
