Two Women

Two women with the same first name,

who also shared a last initial,

phoned me up on the very same day.

Both left a message, and to both I replied,

again on the same, very same, day.

Sharing a name and an initial is nice,

sharing a time and a location? Think twice.

One booked a Monday, the other Today.

Same time, same place,

same name, same initial.

Both with families,

Quite individual.

I never claimed to be a poet, but every so often life demands more than prose.  😉

And seriously, everything, all along the board… just kept seeming more and more odd.  It was funny enough to receive two phone messages one after another from women with the same first name and last initial.  And they both sounded quite similar on the phone – so much so that I actually made sure to clarify that the second woman really was a different woman.  LOL  But then, for them to pick sessions one day after the other (booked way in advance), and for the same times?  It couldn’t end there though, in the end they both ended up choosing the exact same meet-up spot, and we shot in almost the exact same spots…  and it’s not like this is a usual spot for me – these were the first two sessions I’ve shot in this particular location since last year.  LMAO  And this was not of my doing, both families requested this spot without first asking me for suggestions.  I just thought it was WAY too funny.
