When I was little, being an identical twin, I always heard, "You look just alike". When we got older, we automatically assumed that we didn't look as identical. (Actually, we really don't...she's the skinny twin :) Yet, we get stared at quite often.
In spite of having a twin, I have had people come up to me and say, "You know who you look like?" Let's see...I've been told I look like Clair Huxtable, Wanda Sykes, and one of the cashiers from the grocery store. In fact, many times, I've had conversations with people who say, "Girl, I haven't seen you in a long time! Where you been?"
My reply? "I'm not sure who you think I am but I'm not her."
Then, they'd reply, "You look JUST like her!"
One day, I had someone come up to me and punch me in the arm. (It hurt too.) She said, "So, don't say hi!"
I looked at her and said, "Hi??" (Interpretation...I have no clue who you are.)
Her response: "Don't you be playing with me. You know who I am."
I kept a blank look on my face and said, "Actually, I don't."
I decided to stop the madness before she punched me again. I told her, "I'm a twin so more than likely, you know my twin sister."
The light came on and she said, "Oh, sorry for hitting you. I didn't know she was a twin."
I made a mental note to tell my sister that the next time someone punches me in the arm for mistaken identity, I get to give it right back to her. :)
Do you have a twin, a look alike? Do you reply, "I get that a lot?"
