Where is she now?

Those perfect teeth, that flawless hair, those juicy chunks of lamb delicately placed atop pita with onions, tomatoes and creamy tzatziki sauce....

It's 2009. How old is the face of the Kronos Gyro? She is omnipresent in every street fair I have ever attended, but she must be at least 50 by now. She may be the longest running spokesmodel for a product ever (are gyros even a product? If you think about it, its like running an ad for a turkey sandwich...).  I wonder where she is living, if she is still modeling for food products in her advanced age, and what raw emotions swell to the surface when she comes face to face with her own smiling visage at a street fair.
