In Sync

What do you call it when two sisters, who aren’t twins, do everything as though they were?

For instance, today, I picked up the phone to call my sister and on my end, it didn’t even ring.  I simply heard nothing, and then a click, and then, someone was dialing out.  And then, silence.

Me to my sister; “Jenny???……. Hello?”

Her to me; “Andie????  That’s weird.  Your phone didn’t even ring…..I just called you.”

Me, “No, I just called you,” and we both started to giggle.

We do this to each other ALL the time.  We’ll set a time to meet up somewhere and both pull into a parking lot at the exact same moment.  Or, we show up at each others houses wearing exactly the same clothes.  We have even gone to a friends barbecue wearing  identical  sundresses that each of us had bought a few days prior but neither one of us knew about.  We can finish each others sentences and think the same thoughts.  Sometimes, I’ll be about to say something and she says it right as my mouth opens to form the words.  We laugh at the same things, yawn together, and sigh out loud in sync.  When we’re listening to a song, there will be a verse that we simultaneously belt out together and smile.

My brother-in-law calls it freaky.   I call it bliss.

    We have that phenomenon in our family – I am fake twin to my sister – totally synced in all aspects and thousands of miles away. And now, my 2 girls – 2 years apart – are so much like twins, that there isn’t a day when someone asks us that – and they, in sync, explained they aren’t! Great post!

    That sounds pretty cool. I have a brother whose 15 months older than me so people used to think we were twins (or boyfriend/girlfriend ick!), but I’ve never had that level of “sync”dom with anyone.

    I love it…you two often seem like twins…maybe you are on a soul level if not a physical level. Love you both ❤
