My brother and I have always been eerily similar, so much so, that our mother likes to joke that we are secretly twins.
We are not, as my brother is older than me by 3 years.
Even still, my brother and I are similar on pretty much everything, whether it be looks, interests and even personality. We both have green eyes and short medium brown hair, the only difference really is that he is more muscular and I am lean, and that he is a couple inches taller than me. Our interests are virtually the same, which is video games and sports. Probably one of our weirdest similarities though, is the HVAC system, we didn’t discover this though until we moved out. When we had moved out for the first time, we were discussing who would pay the bills, do the household chores and whatnot, when the topic of HVAC came up. We both agreed that 76 degrees is a good temperature, and that we would take turns taking care of the heating and cooling unit. I would go ahead and take care of changing the A/C filter out, but next time he would be the one scheduling for a HVAC tech to come out for HVAC maintenance. Since then, we’ve haven’t had any fights or anything over the HVAC device. After that, then we will move on to HVAC duct cleaning and so on. In fact, we have been discussing getting a new A/C model, and we have already agreed on a few. I love the fact that my brother and I are so similar, it makes making decisions so much easier.
