long lost brother

I had been living abroad for over a year and had been home for several months, but had not seen my older brother, Stephen.  I was driving down a freeway with three little boys that I was a nanny for, when I saw this truck speed by me, that I thought was him.  I began following him, trying to get his attention, flashing lights etc…  I finally got up close enough to motion for him to pull over, which he did.  I also pulled over, got out and ran up to his truck as he got out, he was facing the other way.  As he turned around, I reached out to give him a big hug yelling STEPHEN!!!  As my arms started to envelop him, I realized it wasn’t him.  He was looking at my horrified.  I stopped and said “You are not who I thought you were.”  I then hurried back to my car which by now was filled with the gleeful laughter of three little boys.

  1. That’s so funny. I would have done the exact same thing! I always think i recognize people and they usually end up being the wrong person.
