Yup. Two of them. Randoms. And one more. Plus 3 others.
The first doppelganger was an 11 year old boy who looked so much like a friend of mine from my childhood. I had to
Fast forward to later in the evening.
At the same event I came across another doppelganger. At least I think she was. I even spoke directly to this woman and asked her name....how long she lived in the area....did she have children the same age as mine....did they attend the same school.....was she a member of any of the organizations that I was a member of........? Of course the answer to all of these questions was a conclusive "no" or the equivalent to that in fact finding. Hmmm.....I don't know where I've seen her before but she herself says that this isn't the first time she's been questioned like this. She has been mistaken for someone else before I stepped in with the third degree.
Hmmmmm. Curiouser and curiouser.
There is a lady who works at a restaurant who looks exactly like my neighbor.
There was a man who came knocking at my door who looked exactly like a different neighbor.
But this. This is the story that really gets my mind working
in fullCinematic Color.
It happened a long, long time ago (18 yrs), in a far away land (WI).
We were friends with a couple who shared some information with us.
They were having trouble conceiving children and after many years of trying
and a lot of money spent, they were able to go to a fertility clinic in a NAMELESS CITY
(avoiding any lawsuits) that helped them get pregnant. Yes, it was successful
and yes they were the proud parents of TRIPLETS. We were good friends and our children
shared many happy birthdays together and
all was fine until one day.....
It was a moment I'll never forget. I was finished playing racquetball and heading back to the
locker room, thus not having my children with me, when I turned the corner of the hallway.
Coming straight toward me were the min-versions
(three!!! count 'em three!!)
of our good friends' TRIPLETS!
The exact same look only with bigger ears!
Can you say "TWIGHLIGHT ZONE" ?!
Now, you might be thinking to yourself that I'm starting to sound a little
looney. Maybe you think I'm just bad at noticing details about people and that's
why I think I see the same people everywhere I go.
So get this.......I had to ask.
I delved into some idle chatter with the triplet's enforcing how cute they were,
and all those things that people say to parents about their small children. So she'd
feel comfortable enough (just enough) to share with me how her Triplets came to be.
Hang on to your seats!
They were having trouble conceiving and went to a fertility clinic in....
You just can't make this stuff up!
