I don't know what it's like to be a singleton...I'm so used to being a pair. It's all I've ever known. In fact, when I think back on my childhood, I picture my twin and I holding hands. Most every picture that my mom has of us, we're holding hands. I'm almost sure we held hands in the womb. Even now, when we're together, there's a sense of comfort that she's close by.
Yesterday, we were hanging out and in the midst of a huge crowd of people, we got separated. I didn't have my cell phone with me so I panicked. I decided to use my "twintuition". I stood off to the side to see if I could "feel" that she was close by. Nope. She wasn't. Then, my heart really started pounding. For a minute, I felt what it would be like to be without her...no longer having her to call and talk to and get into mischief with. Then, who would I eat junk food with? Or talk about magazine articles or Grey's Anatomy and catch up the latest gossip?
Then, all of a sudden, I felt that she was close by. I looked across the room and she was heading towards me! She says, "Neecy!!" Me: "Nay Nay!!!" For a moment, I was taken back to when we were Neecy and Nay Nay, the duo. And it was good.
So, what's it like having a twin, my thoughts....everyone should have a twin!
