DOES EVERYONE HAVE A TWIN ???
I had a very strange thing happen to me recently. I was having lunch with a friend and a woman who I would judge to be about 40 approached our table. She excused herself for interrupting us and then asked if I would mind if she took my picture?
Of course I was a little taken aback and I asked her, “Why?” She said she couldn’t wait to send my picture to her mother, “because you are a dead ringer for my mom”, she said, “even to the way that you use your knife and fork.”
On questioning her further I found out that her mom was about 65 (this pleased me greatly since I‘m 10 years older) and that she was a widow and lived in Canton, Ohio. It was also interesting (and a little eerie) that she was the youngest of 5 children as am I. However she did have brothers, where all my siblings are sisters.
I did let her take my picture and then my friend and I commenced with our lunch. We conversed on many subjects and it seemed that we had forgotten the incident ... but something kept nagging at me even as we chattered away.
Suddenly it came to me. I remembered that my Grandmother,on my father’s side,had originally come from Canton, Ohio! I couldn’t wait to share this with the woman who had taken my picture. Perhaps we were actually related!
However I was disappointed to find that she and her party had already left the restaurant. Now I will never know is there was an actual connection between us or if it was just a strange coincidence. I’ve read that everyone has a “clone” somewhere ... and I guess this was mine.
I’m interested. Has anything like this ever happened to you?
