An Amazing Portrait of an Even More Amazing Person

Last weekend, I did something I have never done in all of my life: I got my portrait drawn in Central Park!! I had just been innocently walking along, minding my own business, when I crossed paths with an artist named Zhihou.

Zhihou conentrates while my friend Michelle (to the left) and random people observe
Having my portrait sketched by Zhihou was JUST like that scene in "Titanic" when Jack sketches Rose, but with a few minor differences (less nudity, slightly less expensive jewelry etc). The whole experience was a hoot! Passersby stared as Zhihou furiously scribbled away at what I expected was going to be an amazing portrait of my timeless beauty. The final product was slightly different than I had anticipated...Let's just say I won't necessarily be using this image for my next online dating profile pic!

The weirdest thing happened later than night. I went to see the movie "Friends with Benefits" (which I LOVED by the way!), and in the movie, the main characters had their portraits done in Central Park. What are the odds? Weirdest coincidence ever!! I guess great minds think alike.
