SOBCon08: Separated at Mirth

Dscn0087I often joke that I've been so busy that I meet myself coming and going.  In that same vein, some kind of cosmic kismet (which is just fun to say) has occurred here at SOBCon08.  I've met my twin.  Yeah, yeah, I know.  We bald guys with goatees all look the same to you follicled people.  But this is just weird (in a good way).  I met Stephen Smith yesterday.  OK, we're actually a couple of years apart in age.  In addition to the similar appearance (and height, and body build), we use the exact same phone, use the same brand of camera, and have the same frightening sense of humor.

Someone once told me, "When they made you, Tim, they broke the mould.  And then they beat up the mould-maker and banished him from society."  (It was meant as a compliment, I'm sure.)  Well, the mould maker returned with a vengeance.

Yes, that's right, I had to stop and figure out which guy I was talking to at times! :)

Timothy Johnson

Karen - I'm still not sure which of us is which :)

Stephen Hopson


First of all, it was GREAT meeting you - I was warmed by your presence. The above photo made me laugh because I remember meeting you for the first time at lunch (remember? It was at the Corner Bakery Cafe). The moment you and Stephen Smith sat next to each other, I was like, "Ah, separated at BIRTH."

How endearing and funny! :)
