I have an identical twin brother and a younger sister. We once switched our last class of the day in high school. The teachers had no clue. Our sister is seven years younger and when we were kids she always wanted to hang out with her big brothers and friends. We always said no. Now she is the coolest sibling and we have to beg to hang out with her. Things surely do change.
