Twin #1 did a double-take as she looked across the room. She gasped and thought, "No, it can't possibly be! But wait...yes, it must be true!"
She always knew something was missing in her life. Like she wasn't quite complete. And now she knew why. She had a sister!! A twin sister.
Twin #2 was still oblivious to this piece of information. She was completely unaware that her life was about to change. Just call her the un-observant one of the pair.
A few moments passed before Twin #1 finally gathered up enough courage to approach her long-lost sister. She hesitated as thoughts of doubt and insecurities crept into every corner of her mind.
"What if she doesn't believe me?"
"What if she thinks I'm not good enough to be her sister?"
"What if she completely rejects me?"
In the end she decided it was worth the risk. She needed to reach out to her sister. They had a lot of catching up to do. Yes...she would do it.
Timidly she walked up to Twin #2 and quietly got her attention.
Twin #2 slowly turned around, did a double-take of her own, and before taking another breath, reached out to pull her sister in for a warm embrace.
"I thought I would never find you," Twin #2 said, fighting back the tears.
"What? You knew about me?" sniffed a surprised Twin #1.
"Oh yes. Our mother told me about you years ago. I finally found you shortly before Christmas. But just as I was about to approach you, this lovely woman purchased you and walked out of the store with you neatly folded in her Reitman's bag. And I thought you were out of my life forever."
Twin #1 was fascinated by this turn of events. Slightly overwhelmed, thinking this kind of thing only happens in the movies, she embraced her sister one more time as the tears streamed uncontrollably -- and unashamedly -- down her cheeks.
They were reunited at last.
Okay, so that was really corny. But it was a lot of fun!! My aunt and I enjoyed doing our little mini photo-shoot yesterday at our family gathering once we realized we were wearing the exact same jeans.
(Okay, not e-x-a-c-t-l-y the same jeans...the sizes are a bit different. I never said they were identical twins!)
