Twins Day 2023

On March 1, 2006, something incredible happened. I’ve commemorated it every year since then on this blog. Entirely unplanned, this is what my coworkers and I happened to wear to work on that fateful day:

My coworkers and I were enjoying lunch together in the meeting room of my first “real” job. Halfway through my sandwich, I looked over at my coworker, Tracy, and realized that she and I were wearing similar outfits.

“Hey, we match,” I told her.

Another coworker piped up. “Yeah, I was telling Alan earlier that we match too.”

Two other coworkers looked at each other and realized the same thing. Then two others.

Incredibly, four pairs of people had independently and accidentally dressed almost identically to one another. Really. This is not a joke. This was completely unplanned.

We knew that no one would believe the story, so we took a photo to commemorate the occasion.

At my next job, I continued the Twins Day traditional in several variations. Now it’s just Megan and me working at home, and my cats always wear the same outfit, but we did our best.

Have you ever worn nearly the exact outfit as a coworker or friend?
