Is it irony or have we actually merged into one person?

After lunch, typing away on our computers before our afternoon class, Kyle turns to me and says, "I feel like I am getting a fever blister."
"Where?" I ask
He points to the corner of his lip, which indeed looks agravated.
"You should go see the nurse" I advise. (Because we are at an English Village where the kids stay day and night, there is always a nurse on hand who gives medicine when required.)

After a few moments, he says, "It says here," looking at his computer screen "that sometimes a cut in the lip can feel like a fever blister. Maybe I will wait till morning."
"Sounds like a plan." I reply smiling at his cautious nature.

The next morning, as the annoying beeping of the alarm awoke us, and the first yawn graced my lips I realized from the burning sensation on my upper lip, that in fact I had a fever blister.
My eyes pivot immediatly to where Kyle had pointed previously. " Do you have a fever blister?" I demand.
"No, it must have been a cut." Kyle says with relief
"I never felt like I was getting a fever blister so how did I end up with one and you didn't" I implore without actual hope for an answer.

So there you have it. Is it irony or have we actually merged into one being with one feeling the others pain?

I'm pretty sure you merged into one person about 5 years ago. :o)

more along the lines of...passing it between each other without knowing so!
but I like the merging theory too ;)
