Mrs TWC celebrates her birthday today. She's a mirror image twin and was the second baby and an unexpected surprise. Twins? These days we have color ultrasounds saved on an SD card in MP4 format, but in the year of the Summer of Love, doctors searched for heartbeats with a stethoscope. He didn't notice the second one and the stork didn't send any advance notice that there would be twins. They came early and both her and Laura did incubator time though Lisa's incarceration was longer.
There's been a lotta water run under the bridge. Been a lifetime, seems like. I've written a lot about her over the years, too. Although, English is a beautiful and expressive language, it's difficult to say the same things in a new and shiny way. And, she's down with that old high school rule from the dark ages: Shows of public affection will be limited to hand holding only. No mushy stuff online. Thankee. I can quote Stevie Ray, though.
Well I love my baby like the finest wine
Stick with her until the end of time
I love my baby, heart and soul
Love like ours will never grow old
Bonus: Stevie Ray and Albert King
Guess you could say that she's just my style.
