Yesterday… Wendy and I went to super Wal-Mart to get groceries for the work group that is here this weekend. By the time we got in the van to come home, it was quite warm outside. I was amused by the fact that we each pulled off a brown sweater and we each rode homewearing a green and blue short sleeved shirt.

Today… it’s going to get warm again, but it was just a little chilly this morning, so I dressed in layers again. My blue “gifted” camp shirt from last summer, with a brown sweater zipped halfway up over top. About two hours later, I was working across the kitchen bar from Wendy. She looked at what I’m wearing, gave me an amused smile, and lifted up the hem of her brown long-sleeved shirt to show me her matching “gifted” shirt underneath.

Monday… Wendy and I walked into the library together. A random guy using a computer looked up at us and asked loudly, “Are you twins?!” (Which is kind of a random question, because if we were, would it really be something for a stranger to get excited about?) When we told him we were cousins, he said, “Are you sure?!”  🙂

    I can see how you might be mistaken for twins. You both have very distinct familial facial commonalities. 🙂 Did I impress you w/ my big words? Your faces look similar, at least in pictures. But if I met Wendy, I probably would say you look nothing alike.

    no, if you met Wendy, you would still say we look a lot alike, but you wouldn’t mistake us for twins.
