Take a look at this picture. No, you’re not seeing double. Pictured are two of the exact same shirts.
The one on the left is the one I bought because I thought it would be great for work and I look good in blue.
The one on the right is the one I received a couple days ago in a care package from my mom, where she noted she thought “it would be great for work” and that I “look good in blue.”
Is there an echo in here?
Seriously, how eerie is it that we bought the exact same shirt? It’s the same size, same brand, same color, and from the same store.
Is it that we just both have good taste? Or, are we the first pair of Siamese twins to be separated by 1000 miles? Or maybe I'm becoming my mother?
Personally, I think this is sweet vindication for my poor mom, who had to endure years of eye-rolling and loud sighing whenever she suggested clothing during my teenage years.
I think a thank you is in order. Thanks, mom!
