If you don't know what to do with your spare time, go walk your dog. If you don't have a dog, walk someone else's dog. It's a better way for you to spend your time than what you are doing right now. If you think you don't have any spare time, then you probably don't have a dog.

comment Word for foreigner or person of another race mistaking you for someone?
@ermanen You have to recognize from reading the references that race plays only a part of it, even though the terms are race-oriented. The effect is more about what are familiar physiognomic attributes and the tendency to focus on those when performing identification.
