Same: 1. We're both polyglots. 2. We both like the same kind of guys (for me). 3. We both remember really minute details. Different: 1. My mom is 5'11" and looked like a model when she was young! I'm only 5'2" 2. My mom is a domestic goddess and I can't even summon up the tiniest interest in buying a cooking pan. 3. My mom is really good about being kind when she has the opportunity, rather than indifferent. Which is not to say I'm unkind, but I should be nicer than I am. Maybe that comes with being older!
