It seems that everyone at works like chalyz. Or the people that matter anyway.
However, they're also all like "She's exactly like myst!"
and while chalyz and I have realised this a LONG time ago (we're convinced we're soul sisters) it's a little disconcerting to have people tell you that.
When The Big Boss said that though, I had to speak up.
"In what way?"
"aw, she's just like you when you first started"
I thought a bit, then replied
"She's almost exactly like me, but she's a whole lot sweeter, alot milder, and she's not as cynical as I am. Life's been pretty nice to her"
My boss' reply? "Give her some time"
That was last night.
Today, I was stuck making coffees all day, and I happened to look at the chocolate pots, and I was thinking to myself
"and there's another difference between us other than slight movie preferences, I like dark chocolate, and she likes white chocolate"
and then I started laughing.
I was the bitter one, and she was the sweet one.

EDIT: I thought about it, and I realised that there are a million little differences between chalyz and myself, but that's what makes us different, sisters and not clones. Small little differences like that I'm forthright to the point of bluntness and she's tactful to the point of being "typically Asian". That I still feel weird and sometimes react rather violently (without meaning to) about people buying me drinks, carrying my things or opening doors and she doesn't mind it at all.
and that we're still kinda learning what we want to about each other from each other. I want more of her tact, more of an ease with people doing things and favours for me without suspicion, little things...and I guess that's exatly it. That we're still our own people with our own distinct personalities- just much more in tune than so many other people.
