Melissa and Deborah

Our names mean the same thing. Mine's Greek, her's is Hebrew. They are both "honey"

Three instances of weird.

I. The synagogue. Deborah and I walk in together. Andi Cohen (Religion School director) says hi to us, and then asks Deborah, "Is your mom coming?" Deb says no, Andi asked how she got here. Deborah points to me and says, "she took me." We walk outside, and then standing near the door, Andi motions ot me. I walk in, and she says, "Don't you have a little sister? Is your little sister coming?" I say yes, point back to Deb, and say, "she's right there." I walk to my car, sit in it for an approximate hour and a half, walk back into the synagogue where Andi tells me, "Oh, I got you mixed up with Aniko." Aniko being my little sister's thirteen year old friend. Riiiight.

II. Mori's Steakhouse. First of all, I saw Steve, and Martin was our waiter, so that was odd. Sara, Debbie and I were there, sitting Sara - Melissa - Deborah. Our cook asks Sara if Deborah is her sister. Um, no. I say, "No, she's my sister.

III. Video Warehouse. We walk in, and the guy behind the counter asks if we're sisters. I say yes, but that I don't think we look anything alike. They said we definitely did, by our demeanor as well as looks. Then they said something about us looking a year or two apart. Atleast they assumed that I was the older one, though. I asked what ages they thought we looked, and they said 16 and 18. I said then that we were 21 and 13, and the guy's eyes bugged out, like he couldn't even believe it, and told us we definitely looked closer in age than that.

So my question to you is... Do Deborah and I look alike? Apparently we do in some circumstances, but in others, even when *I* was sitting next to Deborah, our cook thought SARA and Deborah looked alike. What's your take? And how old do we look?

Even if we do look alike, WHY THE HECK DO PEOPLE KEEP BRINGING IT UP!?

This one is from tonight:

You can definitely tell that you're sisters. The picture from tonight Deborah looks much older than 13, but the other pictures she looks more her age =).

Other than the dark hair and dark eyes (of which mine are much darker) I don't even see it at all.

Also, those other pictures date back to 2002, for the one with the whole family. The others are all from 05, I think. At any rate, she was younger in them.

I think Deborah looks 15 and I'd put you around 19 if I hadn't met you before.

Its funny how it works. I'm not at the age yet where I want to look younger than I am (I figure it'll start between 25-30) but hearing that I look 2-3 years younger than I am I hope bodes well for when I'm 30 and want to look 27.

And of course, Deb is at the age where she definitely wants to look older. Indira, my best friend who has known Deborah since birth, got confused yesterday when I said I had to pick Debbie up from school, "Doesn't she drive?" Uh, no. She's 13.

I'll agree with everything the previous two said.

I'd say there's some resemblance there. Deborah looks maybe a year older than she is, & you look maybe a year younger than you are. But 16 & 18? That's crazy! Haha.

I know! We were very startled to hear we looked only two years apart, when there are 8 years between us!

I think you look more like Vivi than Deborah. People always freak out about how much my siblings and I look alike even though I don't think any of our resemblance is *that* close, so maybe it's something other people notice and we don't because we're so used to what we look like and what our siblings look like, so we're much more aware of the differences.

Yep, I'd definitely say that Vivi and I look more alike. I also think the two of us look more like my dad and my brother and younger sister look more like my mom.

As for you and your sister, I definitely see huge resemblances. So, maybe you have to be removed from the situation or something.

I have little to no experience with this, since my one brother is adopted, around my age, and looks NOTHING like me.

That being said...

I think Deb looks younger than you. I'd put her right around 14-15. It's very hard for me to say how old you LOOK because I already KNOW, and I can't just shut that off in my head. You look like a girl in your 20s, but again, I know that you ARE a girl in your 20s.

You look older than she does, I can say that much.

geez. saying I look like a girl in my twenties makes me feel old, since I'm barely in my twenties. But yeah.

I think when someone identifies a person by giving an age range of ten years (twenties, thirties, forties, etc), that person automatically assumes at least the middle range.

So when I said you look like a girl in your twenties, you may have subconsciously assumed I meant around 25. What I really meant was a girl in her early 20s.

But again, that could be because I KNOW how old you are, and just can't make myself not consider it.

I have a fraternal twin sister. We get weird looks just about every time we go out together. It gets quite irritating when you hear "Are you sisters or twins?" 5 times a day. So I don't feel sorry for you. lol And I do see a resemblance. :)
