Just like me
April 7, 2012 – I have to admit, I did a small double take when I saw the photo of little e, above. I mean, I knew it was him but I had to look again for just a second. You see, I was taking pictures of the two of us on the iPhone using the front camera. He was blocking shots with his hand. So there was a tiny possibility it was actually a picture of me. To prove I wasn’t seeing things, I looked for (did not pose for) a picture of myself. I found this one, my annual birthday self-portrait from 2011. See how similar? The eye, the nose . . . but the clincher is the way his lips are set, making him look, in this moment anyway, just like me.
