I have a friend who looks just like me. We both have light brown hair that we wear pulled back, often in pigtails. We dress in the same types of sporty clothes. Our glasses have thick rims and a blue tint. We are both journalists, athletes and moms to little kids. Even our husbands look alike, and even they get my friend and me mixed up sometimes. Everywhere we go, strangers ask us if we’re twins.
