Im not chalking this up to anything other than coincidence, but its a neat story I thought I would share.
On Sunday, Feb 13, I was flying from San Diego back home to Michigan. I had a two hour layover in Ohare.
As I was sitting by myself at the gate, impatiently waiting for the flight to board, I was listening to my IPOD on my iPhone. I had just gotten off
the phone with my brother, because he was the one that was going to pick me up at the airport when I arrived. I was letting him know that I should be
there in a little over an hour.
People were all over and the gate was getting busier as the time got closer to board.
I looked up and there was this guy walking towards me.
He eventually took a seat about 4 seats down from me, sitting on the same side of the seating rows.
As he approached and was heading directly towards me I looked up at his face and did literally, a triple take.
This guy looked just like me from front on.
I mean EXACTLY!
I about flipped out.
I cant imagine that at that point he noticed me, because I would assume he would have had some kind of reaction by seeing his twin starting right at
Now, I stand at about 6'2 and weigh about 190lbs. I am on the thin side.
This guy probably stood about 6'2, as well, but probably leaned towards 220 or so. He had more of a solid body than I do. He apparently has spent a
tad more time in the gym than me.
Here is where it gets weird.
As he was sitting next to me, like I stated about 4-5 seats away I looked at him again and to my complete and utter surprise, his profile view looked
100%, identical to my younger brother.
I stared at this guy for about 10 seconds before I realized I was staring and looked away.
Of course, I kept looking at this guy and even positioned myself in a manner that I could look at him without turning my head and looking like a
Now my brother is about 5'9 and on the heavier side. But 100% IDENTICAL to my brothers profile view.
I got to thinking as I was sitting there about other peoples reactions. So I was kind of looking at other people to see if they registered that this
guy and myself looked alike and sure as sh*t, one lady was looking at us both. Shifting her head from him to me to him to me for a few seconds. She
didnt comment or anything, but it was obvioius (at least to me) that she was comparing our features. Or so it seemed anyway.
So, Im staring at this guy again and he turns his head and we make eye contact. Neither of us said anything but looked at each other for few seconds
before shifting our eyes.
I probably should have struck up a conversation with him and in hind sight am a little upset that I did not. I was hungover and really just wanted to
get home to my bed.
Like I said...weird story. Especially since my brother and I dont much alike. How could guy look like me from the front and my brother from the side?
