I Must Confess….

I have to confess:

My twin is a Disney Pixar character.

No, we’re not the same colour.

We don’t even share the same species.

But she’s my twin and alter-ego.

She’s a fish named Dory. 


I first met Dory in the movie “Finding Nemo”, several years ago.

I don’t know if she was born forgetful or if she had an accident that jostled her brain around, but Dory keeps forgetting important stuff. Like where she is or what she’s supposed to be doing.  You wouldn’t know that she’s actually smart.

My daughter was the first person to notice the similarity between us – and as soon as she said it, I knew: Dory is my twin. 

So you know I’ll be first in line when “Finding Dory” comes out, don’t you?

Well …. That’s if I remember.

Here’s the trailer:

  1. I still enjoy Disney movies, new and old, whether or not they are politically correct. 🙂 Dory is a wonderful character to have as your twin and look forward to seeing the movie. Here’s to allowing more play. 🙂

  2. I loved that movie. Of course, I love just about any movie about underwater creatures. Animated ones tickle me. My three year old grandson also loves it. My granddaughter naturally loves Little Mermaid.

  3. I hope you do remember – amazing how many things can drift past as day follows day. Memory is a tricky beast.

  4. Oh how I loved when my children wanted to watch that movie over and over again when they were young. Each time Dory would make me laugh at something I had missed from the previous time watching. And while she has her “disability”, I think the quality I admire about her is her eternal optimism. She just keeps on swimming….like others I know…great post Cynthia!

  5. Thank you for making me smile, Cynthia. This looks like a movie I’d enjoy. Good on you for keeping a sense of humor regarding memory loss. Years ago I promised myself I’d laugh at my forgetfulness if it happened to me. My kids don’t always think it’s funny–but I have remembered to chuckle instead of chafe. 🙂

  6. I love Dory! She is so kind and understanding and optimistic – in fact she is the star of Finding Nemo! I am looking forward to Finding Dory. I think if anyone told me my alter ego was Dory I would be flattered.

  7. awww cynthia:-)I think Dory is adorable:-) our kids really do know us, but you sure have a wonderful memory for the past! Love your stories from your book:-)

    1. Robbie! Thank you.
      That’s it exactly: while I have to write down almost everything of significance that happens in the present, I do remember some old things very well indeed. So I guess I’m living in the past — and realizing that much of it was way better than I thought.

  8. Dory sounds like a loveable fish! I think many of us can relate to Dory and her forgetfulness. 🙂 I have not seen any of the Little Mermaid films yet, but will have to put them on my list.

  9. Oh, maybe we’re triplets–you, Dory and I:). I have always been a bit of an absentminded professor also. There are far worse character “flaws” you could have, Cynthia!

  10. Not all the time, but occasionally. I have always had a truly excellent memory, so when it doesn’t come through pronto – or at all – it’s pretty disturbing. Maybe triplets. 🙂
