I bet if you asked, most people don’t know anyone with the same birthday as them.
Not me. I know loads.
Nick the goth from art class in high school, Anita from the ashram, Moohee my best friend in film school, H’Sia, my friend’s beautiful two-year old daughter… The list goes on…
However, I was fortunate enough to spend Christmas with my very favorite birthday sharer, who I would consider a sister more than merely just a friend.
I’ve known Phoebe since July 14, 1988, the day she was born on my sixth birthday.
Now we’re both in Asia, me in Korea, her in Japan, and lucky enough to spend the holidays together with other childhood bestie. Lafayette reunion, represent.
