The Word of the Day is: Doppelganger
Margaret gave me this, which was on her “Word of the Day” calendar last Friday.

Several years ago, my friend Matt mentioned he might have found my doppelgänger. A few Flickr searches later, Ben finds the guy and gets me an email address. I set up a meeting, and the two of us (me?) meet for the first time.
Here’s the discovery process, in sequence:
