I have written before about how I can get confused by well-known women who either look like each other or who have similar-sounding names (follow the links for a full and ahem scientific explanation).
Here’s another one. There are two well-known women (“well-known” in the pages of the Daily Mail at least) who confuse me utterly — until, that is, I see their picture. They have the same last name (Rose) with first names of Ruby and Demi, respectively, and thus confuse me utterly if I’m just reading text (“Now which one is that?”). An easy difficulty to encounter, I think we can all agree, especially as neither seems to have done anything of note (e.g. won an Oscar, found a cure for cancer or married a member of some royal family).
Once you see pictures of said Roses, however, it becomes a lot easier, because Ruby looks like this:
…while Demi looks quite different:
Of course, to me they both look (and from what I can tell, behave) like prostitutes; but while Ruby actually has a more interesting face, at least Demi isn’t covered with ink:
But it’s all a question of personal preference, of course, and yours may well differ from mine. Right now, all I have to remember is: Ruby = tattoos, Demi = curves, and that’s how I can keep them differentiated.
