    Some friends my wife and I have are similar to us in alot of ways and completely by coincidence. Like us, they are a family of 3 with a black lab-ish dog, both fathers are teachers who are musicians, both women stay at home for the most part. Our kids are both males who are 5 years old and both families are vegan. Sure there are lots of differences but there's alot of uncanny similarities too.

    Is that weird or what?

    My mom told me never to ride the bus late at night since there is always a weirdo on the bus that late. Well, I disregarded her advice and rode the bus really late one night anyway. Guess what? I looked around the whole bus, no weirdo...

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm......

    I like turtles.
    I'm going to quote something that Tim Minchin (hilarious Australian comedian/musician/musical comedian) said about unusual births, but I feel applies here as well:

    "To presume that your 1-in-64-million chance thing is a miracle is to significantly underestimate the total number of things that there are."
     
  12. when you go to your friend's house for a bbq, and their baby back ribs are really just tofu cut into rectangles....

    ok, back on topic. when i had a functioning marriage i used to tell this story of supposed coincidence:

    my sister and i are both geminis. our b-days are two days apart (plus a year). our mom is aquarius, our dad sagittarius. so, my wife, her mom, and our daughter are all aquarius. our son, my sisters husband, and their two boys are all sagittarius.

    basically all the females are aquarius and all the males are sagittarius (both winter signs). with me and my sis linking everyone together as geminis (spring sign).
