How is it people keep confusing my sister and I, or keep thinking we're identical twins?
BF just reported that someone at work is mad for my sister and my BF somehow offending a person at McDonalds (? I'll get the whole story later, he just let me know this over email) when we were doing nothing more than standing in line. The problem is... well, we. It was my BF and I getting a quick drink while he was on his lunch.
Why am I confused? We do look a little similar, not completely alien. At least, the same dark blonde hair color, but its kept at different cuts. She wears glasses, I have 20/20 vision, she looks all Nordic where I took after the Celtic side of the family. She has pale skin with rosy cheeks, a thin face with high cheekbones and grey-blue eyes. I have a wider face with somewhat high cheek bones, a darker complexion with a little less red, and hazel eyes, and have quite a few freckles.
Yet we often get stopped if we're out having lunch together, and are asked if we're identical twins. People just don't seem to believe that she's two and a half years older than me.
