Thanks to everyone who voted on my poll. The majority seems to think Rania and I don’t look the same, but we could be sisters.
In light of this, I decided to post a picture of me and my actual sister. Lisa is 3.5 years younger than I am and one of my best friends. This was taken in Hyde Park about 5 years ago when we visited Mom and Dad in London.
We never thought we looked that much alike, but there is some resemblance. We are both 5’3” and we both have dark hair although hers is a lot curlier than mine. And while I maintain a Snow White complexion, her skin has a year-round tan.
About a month ago I was walking outside Wild Oats and came across an old family friend (my parents affectionately refer to him as “Goofy Todd”). He asked, “How are you Lisa?” and inquired about my “little one”. When I explained he was mistaking me for my younger sister his excuse was, “Oh! you look more and more like her everyday.”
I had no idea I had been aging in recent, not to mention exponential retrograde, but it was flattering, nonetheless.
