BLURB

When you have twins you really have to watch your Ps and Qs if you know what I’m getting at. Actually, you probably don’t know because you’ve probably never had twins. Daughters at that... No one knows about the "strange" as we call it. How they have the same dreams as each other and say and do the same things regardless of whether or not they know what the other one’s up to. They like the same colors, same food, and same boys. Guess the only thing you could relate it to would be war. When you get to know someone so close you know how they breathe, and why.  You hear stories of how one twin dies in some freak accident or car wreck or whatever. Almost always works out the other one dies not too long after. Can’t say I’m surprised none. I watched it happen... [Ryan Nimmo]
