Exactly alike and competely different

That is how I describe my sister and I.

As I have said before, there is no one who knows me like she does.

Many times we say the same things at the same times.
We have the same vocal patterns and mannerisms.

We think the same things and only have to share a glance to convey it.

We bowl and get the exact same score.

OK, maybe that one was a fluke, but I don't think so.

That's right. We rock. 122! AND WE WON! Who would've thought it?

I had a 92 and then came from behind with two strikes in the last frame! It was intense. I am awesome!


We are completely different as well.

I think things....she says them.

I don't know how to tell someone "no" and she doesn't know how to tell someone "yes". (I completely lied about that....she says yes all the time! I just have to joke with her!)

I am a brunette, she is a blonde.

I live in the country, she lives in town.

I love planting flowers and shrubs, she couldn't care less.

However, when you combine our similarities and differences, We think they are a good combination.

Notice the emphasis on the "We".

There are times that when we are in a group that I think that we irritate others. OK, I know we do. An aunt even said, we "wore her out".

We could conjure up many possible reasons why, but I believe it is because our communication between us is so easy for us to understand, and so hard to understand and aggravating to others. It is just on a different level.

We could see something and break into song and we would totally get it. In fact, we would probably join in.

Sometimes our husbands are even left behind.

Some people think that the 10 year age difference would be a wedge between us.

However, I disagree, I believe it is the rope that ties us together.

Do you doubt it? I dare you to compete against us at "Taboo".

Okay, first of all, I read the entire post (via RSS) thinking it was another blogger. I was surprised to see it was you. I'm going to have to re-read it now.

I love close sisters. Have one myself. She's always been my best pal. We are eerily similar. It's a relationship I wish everyone had the good fortune of having in their lives. So glad you and your sister have each other.
