God help the Mister.

Sisters, sisters
There were never such devoted sisters,
Never had to have a chaperone, No sir,
I'm here to keep my eye on her
Caring, sharing
Every little thing that we are wearing
When a certain gentleman arrived from Rome
She wore the dress, and I stayed home

All kinds of weather, we stick together
The same in the rain and sun
Two different faces, but in tight places
We think and we act as one
Those who have seen us
Know that not a thing could come between us

Many men have tried to split us up,
but no one can

Lord help the mister who comes between me and my sister
And Lord help the sister, who comes between me and my man.

isters, Sisters by Irving Berlin.

Val and I grew up loving "White Christmas" and we've always had a bit of a bug for musicals - surprise! This song especially makes me laugh because of our own personal history as sisters.

1. We did in fact dress alike as children, but not out of our own choosing.

2. I despised when she would copy me. I remember collecting Coke tabs to win prizes. For some reason I think that we went to a local department store to cash in for the winnings. I was devastated when she selected the shirt I had just chosen. We both slept in our oversized Coke shirts for years.

3. Even though we are sisters, we do not always enjoy receiving the same gift for holidays. I do see the fairness and ease of these selections, however, we are two very different individuals and it just doesn't seem to work in every case.

4. I will say that we have the ability to make each other laugh than any other individual on the planet. See exhibit B, a g-chat, for details.
