Who Am I Talkin' To????

Chapter 1: Way back in the day......when I was in high school...........I remember people calling my house and mistaking my voice for my sisters, or vise versa. There were many occasions that I would answer the phone and hear, "Hey, Debbie" and I would politely say, "this is Cindy". People calling our house for me had the same problem. My sister would answer and they would think it was me. I even had one guy tell me that he couldn't believe how much we sounded alike and it freaked him out a little. I thought it was funny, but never really thought much about it.

Chapter 2: A friend of mine called our house awhile back. She was calling for Myshel actually, something about young women's I think. She said, "Hey, how's it going this is Sister _____, and continued on with her message." When I got off the phone I though that seemed funny, that she would call herself Sister _____ when she was talking to me. Almost immediately after I hung up, the phone rang again. It was her and she was laughing, she told me that she just realized after she hung up that it was me on the phone and not Myshel. She told me that she couldn't believe how much we sound alike, "it's uncanny" were her words, I think.

Chapter 3: Myshel's friends and (boy) friends call for her and when I answer the phone, they think I'm her. One of her girlfriends used to call and say, "hey" and nothing else, until I'd say, "Did you want Myshel?" and her embarrassed answer was alway, "oh, yeah, sorry". I guess it is really strange that we sound so much alike, but I guess I'm used to that since apparently I sound, or sounded, so much like my sisters. Myshel thinks it's hilarious. I wonder if she'll think it's funny when her boyfriend calls next time and says, "Hey Myshel" and I say "Hey, how's it going?" and we have a little conversation about "things". hmmm this little querk could have some fun possibilities.
