So, I just got back from a rather excellent production of Bernard Shaw's play Major Barbara. I knew the play pretty well before going in, but I hadn't realized before tonight that my mother-in-law is totally the reincarnation of Lady Britomart. I was laughing way too hard at points because I've heard her say some of those exact lines in real life (and I'm pretty sure she isn't that familiar with the play) and many of the other lines were very very close.

Do you know anybody who might as well have been ripped straight from the page, stage or screen and put in your life to surprise you?
