Good news: you have some great family resemblance stories.
This month we asked you to describe your family resemblance in six words — to give credit where it’s due, or perhaps undeserved and unwanted. Some talked about family function: (“Downward dog. Meditating on mom’s legs.” – CatherineL), while others had something to say about their dysfunction: “Born into long line of drama-queens.” – liberatissima). You took time to reflect on your family’s origin story: (“Immigrants. Ellis Island makes us family.” – BenjaminHommel), to note that personality aren’t always in sync with physicality: (“He’s my twin, but zero resemblance” – jl333), and that the bond between parent and child never ends: (“Mama’s boy became his mother’s caregiver.” – tonyglim). Community member LisaK summarized a resemblance that’s too hard to ignore: “Google thinks we’re the same person.” Facial recognition gets us every time.
Here are our Top 6 family favorites:
And the winner is…
