Writer's Block: Same Name

Have you ever met or known someone who has the same name as you (first and last) but is not a relative?

yes. i miss him. i didn't call him for a long time because i knew him in AA and i had relapsed. i feel a lot of regret about that, because he was such a good friend. i loved him a lot and i've realized that he probably would have still wanted to be my friend, even while i was not sober, even if it had to be from a distance to some degree, but i shut him out all together because i was so ashamed.

actually, an interesting story is that although we were not related, he grew up in a small town with my relatives, and i thought that was interesting enough until we figured out that one of my ancestors, a member of jesse james's gang, killed one of his ancestors on a train... i felt kind of bad, but it's not like we knew them... weird though.

anyway. i miss my friend.
oh yeah, he didn't spell his name like mine. that would have been another weird coincidence.
