girl versions

As I was walking through the airport today I saw a girl who looked exactly like a friend I have from Minnesota. The only difference between this girl and my friend back home is that my friend back home is a boy. They had the same hair color, same build same pointed nose so many similarities. The one at the airport was, however, clearly a girl. I thought about how funny that was that here existed my friends Doppelganger, except this one is a girl. Then, as my mind often does when i think of something clever, I took time to ponder and reflect. I remembered having seen girl versions of other friends of mine, not as exact, but similar. Then my mind reached the conclusion that out there, in the wide-wide world, is a female version of me. The thought weirded me out. As I thought about this she-me I felt bad for her. Because, while I'm an ok-looking guy, she would be an ugly looking girl. Especially if she was as like me as this girl was to my Minnesota friend. I hope I never see her, it would be the strangest thing ever. If I recognized her for what she is, I'd have a hard time not staring. I just got a shiver. I'm done thinking about it.

Did we ever tell you about when we saw Shannon's she-he? It was so strange. We were camping in Yosemite and Shannon was wearing two braids and a green bandanna. Then this guy got out of the car next to ours and he had two long red braids and a green bandanna. It was so strange. We kept running into him that day. I don't think she liked it very much but I thought it was fascinating.

it sounds awkward. Either your friend or this girl is very unfortunate looking. If you ever meet your female doppelganger, take a photo and then run away fast.

Isn't seeing one's own doppelganger an omen of death? So... not only would it be really creepy, but you would probably die.

I've been told I have a doppelganger who runs in riverside park, which is right by where I live. I avoid running in riverside park so I never see her.

as much as the thought of a male lauren scares me, i think the word doppelganger scares me much more
