I wanna walk like you, talk like you, it's trruuuewewew
Do you recognize the song the post title is taken from? It's from The Jungle Book and is Mowgli wanting to be like Baloo. I loved that movie as a child! As soon as I saw these photos from the guys' fishing trip that song starting singing in my head. I was taken with how their movements and posture are so in step with each other. I'd love to have the complete reflection from the last shot but love these pictures that my husband took.
Sometimes when I say something or make a gesture I am quite literally taken aback....I sound exactly like my oldest sister. I mean it is so dead on her that when it happens I internally say WOW! and feel like my body jumps a little bit. Our mama has always had a hard time distinguishing our voices on the phone and once I did the recording on my sister's answering machine, every time I called I thought it was her as did everyone else.
This past weekend we spent time with my husband's older brother that we don't get to see much because of distance. Afterwards I remarked that he and their younger brother had a certain laugh that was identical. I also noted that he had a sitting position that was identical to their father's...back ramrod straight, feet pulled in and crossed, sitting what we call Indian style. DH mentioned that his uncle sits the same way.
What about you? Do you share any outward characteristics with your siblings?
