Speaking of clones, some people feel downright uncomfortable by the mere presence of us. I had a colleague with whom I usually got along fine, but she seemed unable to mentally process the fact that twins can exist. When she met both Jan and me at the same time, she literally ran away because the concept of twins scared her to pieces. She told me it was “extremely spooky” to see him twice at once. That happened every time she encountered both of us, but never when she saw just me.
