Tickle Me Tuesday

I love a good laugh! I love it even more when my youngest daughter Sloane (age 22) does something that proves a point to herself without me even saying a word!

Everyone tells Sloane that her and her Mom (that's me) look alike. Every time we're together and someone says it, she's very polite, smiles and says...

"Thank you. If I look like her when I'm 50, I'll take it!" 

As soon as the person is out of hearing distance, she turns to me and says

"I just don't see it. I just don't think we look THAT much alike."

I always smile outwardly and inwardly know my mirror nor my eyes can be THAT wrong. Can they?

Sloane attended new employee orientation a couple of weeks ago. Like most 22-year-olds she waited until she was walking out the door to get her passport. Luckily, her mom knew where it was. She was rushing me through the fireproof safe as I was saying "If it was that important why didn't you do this last night?" She grabbed her passport and flew out the door.

I was anxiously waiting when I heard my phone buzz with a text message. I expected to read something about her new job. Instead I saw...

"You are not going to believe what I did. I grabbed your passport instead of mine. I just looked at the picture and thought it was me!"

When I caught my breath from laughter, I replied...

"Do you still think we don't look THAT much alike?"

Sloane said she's never going to say we don't look alike again if SHE can mistake our pictures. But of course, she WAS in a hurry! blah hahaha

You be the judge. Do you think we look that much alike? Cast your vote with a comment!

Me and my lovely daughters!
Still laugh when I think about it,
The Happy Handicap
