Care ii traducerea textului : Seeing Double
Being an identical twin can have its high and its low points.Greg an Tim, eighteen-years-old twins, talk about their reletionship.
Greg:Tim and I have always been close-closer than normal brothers.I suppose we do compete with each other but in general we get on very well .At the moment we're studying at colleges in different towns,so I haven't seen him for over six weeks.I miss him.He's my best fried.It's difficult being apart sometimes.
Tim: We often talk on the phone four hours and when we're together there's a constant fight because we want to talk in the same time.We often end up shouting at each other.
Greg: As well as having similar looks,we also have very similar personalities.If one of us is upset, we both are.
Tim:Greg and I are very competitive and very stubborn.
Tim : When we were very small.our mother dressed us in identical clothes and we hated it.People used to point at us and laugh.It was embarrassing.
Greg: It can be quite stressful being a twin.Sometimes you feel like freak.
Greg :I once had appendicitis when I was at home and Tim was away.I had stomach pain from 5 a.m. until I had my appendix out early in the afternoon.That same day Tim woke up at 5a.m. with stomach pains which lasted until exactly the time that I had my appendix out.
Tim : We sometimes have telepathic thoughts but nothing very spooky has happened, except for the appendix thing.
