Doppleganger?

So Dan (the husband) has a best friend named James. James has a blog he doesn't update often that's located here. But that's beside the point...

James had a funny story for me yesterday. It goes something like this (I'm paraphrasing, so forgive me.)

James: So I've been in a training thing all week long.

Katy: okay?

James: And there's this girl in my training that looks SO much like you. I kept looking at her through the whole training, thinking about how much she looks like you.

Katy: yeah?

James: So I know it probably sounded creepy and weird, but I asked her if I could take a picture of her.

Here's the mysterious girl from James' training.

Here I am.

Katy: You're crazy! (Okay, maybe I didn't say that out loud...)

James: I told her that she looked SO much like one of my best friends' wives that it was crazy. So, we're talking and she asked me where my friend lives.

Katy: Okay (wondering what the punch line is)

James: So I tell her that my friend lives in Atlanta. Then she asks me what my friend's name is. So I tell her that his name is Dan.

Katy: yeah?

James: And this girl says, "wait, what? Dan as in Katy and Dan, Dan?"

Katy: WHAT?!?

James: Then she says, "Well, I guess it makes sense that we look alike... because she's my freaking first cousin."

---

Yep, James randomly met my cousin Bradley, my mom's sister's daughter, who was visiting from Tampa for a training. What are the freaking odds? Crazy!

This is so funny! It's a small world. I love that he actually talked with her to find out the connection. What are the odds that you would have similar hair-cuts and glasses? I don't really look like my cousins but your mom looks so much like her siblings than my mom :)

That's pretty crazy! I look nothing like my cousins so this would never happen.

As the mom of Bradley, the aunt of Katy, and the sister of Katy's mother, I definitely LOVE this story!
