I got the inspiration
to create these pages after listening to an interview on National Public
Radio with Dr. Nancy Segal, author of Entwined Lives: Twins and What
They Tell Us About Human Behavior.
The question most identical twins put at the top of their list of most
frequently asked questions is, Which one is which? followed
closely by, Which one are you? and Which one is older?
Well, Im Carolyn and these are some of my web pages. Marilyn is
my identical twin sister and, I would like to point out, the older
twinby about three minutes. When we were growing up, of course,
I didn't bring this fact to her attention.
In the picture above, were six years old and wearing matching pink
and gray dresses bought for us by Uncle Wilbur and Aunt Elmie. We dont
dress alike anymore, but people still get us confused.
This is what we look like today. Thats me, Carolyn, on the left,
and my beloved twin, Marilyn, on the right. I had a woman tap me on the
shoulder at the grocery store awhile ago. I turned around and she said,
"Hi Marilyn!" I said, "Oh, I'm not Marilyn, I'm Carolyn."
Her mouth dropped open and she said, "I know this woman and her name
is Marilyn and she looks just like you!" Yes, it still happens
after all these years and it's still fun!
If youd like to see pictures of the two of us as we were growing
up, Ive put together a four page photo
