I still recall — when I was told how much
I am like Tintin;
it’s not so much my youthful looks
(though I prefer my hair unkempt like him)
but in the way I talk to groups, and
maybe, maybe in a way
I was the least eccentric in the madhouse…
which is compliment of sorts.
My doppelganger can be found in comics, and I don’t even have a white dog. For Susie at toads.

Lol. I love the idea of you as Tintin. I am also the least eccentric person in my family madhouse, so this really made me smile.
Oh, I am not sure if I am the least eccentric in my family madhouse. It is funny what people see in you and thus draw a comparison. Thank you so much for taking part in the prompt!
this is wonderful ~ a delight, and I really like your observations, how “quirky” …. but what a character Tintin is! 😀
Hmmm, I wonder where I would fall.
I see the resemblance! I loved Tintin as a kid.. so many adventures.
You never know? Could be in the comics.
Memories of the doppelganger knowledge start. “when I was told how much I am like…” That’s how I found mine also, an attorney who makes the TV News and not a comic strip character. I am not familiar in any way of your Tintin. He’s never been in our local papers.
I asked Mrs. Jim if I resembled a comic strip character, she said Hagar the Horrible. For sure she said, the way I take hints. Are you familiar with him? He is a Norseman of old, he raids castles with his ragedy crew. He eats a lot and drinks a lot but he doesn’t do a lot around home except eat genorusly of his wife’s, Helga’s, cooking. That is also her favorite comic. Being from the Baltic area, you may know of him.
Dear Tintin, I am dull compared to my two younger sisters! (the oldest needing to be a bit more serious and responsible I suppose?) Love your comic approach to the challenge.
Tintin is a fun twin to have. 🙂
Björn! You’re making me see the resemblance! A good write😊👍🏽
