Being a Twin

When we were toddlers, my twin sister Evie and I, we used to play with the boys next door, Jimmy and Joseph, who were fraternal twins one year our junior. We used to play tag and run around endlessly as well as climb our sycamore trees. As we got a bit older, we used to play running bases, baseball and football in their yard. We also included another set of identical twin boys, Bruce and David from around the block in our games to have enough players.

When the first day of kindergarten came around Evie and I were very excited. Our first day of school! Mom took us there and as we entered the class, every ones’ mouths opened in an ‘o’ of surprise and with adoring looks they all said, “Look at the twins!”

We looked right back at them as stunned as they were and said, “Where are your twins?”

In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king. Fascinating.
