Twins have always excited me; every time I bump into someone who is walking around with his/her twin or carrying a pair of twin babies, I cannot help but admire them, grinning from a distance and sometimes just trying to strike a conversation with them out of awe. I wish I had a twin sister!
They say there are about 6-8 people in the world who look exactly like you! Though I've been told time and again that I resemble so and so person or I remind them of someone they know, I am yet to meet that "some-ONE" who looks like me, at least to an extent. I wish I had a twin sister! (the twin-sessed me).
The other day I was just browsing the internet and landed upon something interesting, which I cannot wait to share with you all. My hope and yearning for meeting my doppelganger increased manifolds when I found out about this!
I wish I had a twin sister! (starting to sound like a chorus, LOL).
So many clones of you roaming on this planet? That's incredible!
….provided, you step out of your home and city and country more often.
I certainly would love to meet my doppelganger…
These pairs are genetically different but mirror reflections of each other.
