Day 7 – Write a post based on the contrast between two things — whether people, objects, emotions, places, or something else.
We share a birthday. Because of this people expect that we are the same. We’re expected to share presents. One present between two people. That’s stingy.
You don’t do it for ‘normal’ siblings. But we’re supposed to smile sweetly and thank you graciously.
I am my own person you know. Just because I happened to share a womb with my sister doesn’t make us automatically interchangeable.
I like silver. She likes gold.
I’ll read the book. She’ll watch the movie.
I prefer cards. She always wants to play board games.
I’ll happily stay at home, if you want to go camping…ask her.
I like long dresses. She practically lives in shorts.
Bold single colours with simple accents is more my thing. She’s into patterns, zigzags and dots.
I like fantasy, fairy tales and happy endings. She likes it if things blow up.
Yes. We’re twins. We are not a carbon copy or a duplicate. There is no ‘same difference’ or ‘two peas in a…’
Yes. We’re twins. We are diverse, dissimilar, distinct.
If you give us the same present we will smile sweetly and thank you graciously (Mum did bring us up well after all), but don’t be surprise if we swap gifts immediately or one of us hands it over, with a grimace, to the other.
You only get one warning. This is it.
