Now how many of you can say that you remember and still talk to the girl next door? :) I'm so happy to say that we have still managed to keep in touch through notes, emails and family. Luckily for me she remembers the goofy stuff we used to do but still talks to me to this day. You see one of the goofy, but fun things was my love for a particular series called "Sweet Valley Twins." It was a series of books that were released that told the story of twin girls, Jessica and Elizabeth, who were best friends until one day everything changed. Jessica and Elizabeth worlds were turned upside down the day that Jessica decided to dress differently from her sister and began hanging out with someone other than her sister. These series books were my first introduction to drama, and at my tender age of 10 that was considered serious drama. The drama became heightened when the series brought the girls into high school and yup you guessed it I had to read them too. Somewhere my passion for the twins began to wane and I moved onto more serious stuff, mostly due to the fact that my brother, then in high school needed help with his book reports, which meant I read the books and told him what happened.
Its so funny, I hadn't thought of these books until my sweet friend brought this over at Christmas time.....
and she was right. It was bad, but I had to read it. Well, I read most of it, I had to skip about a 100 or so pages but still it made me crack up just thinking of those girls, Jessica and Elizabeth. and I also remembered the funny picnics my sweet friend had recalled when she and I would sit in our yards to discuss the latests trials and tribulations of Jessica and Elizabeth. Funny picnics because they took place in two separete yards, she in hers and mine in my grandmother's and we both setup our lunches and talked to each other over a wall until one day she invited me over to her side of the wall.
Yes sweet friend I remember them now and I did read the book and it made for a funny read. Thanks for remembering me and transporting me back to the picnics in the yard when we would talk to each other over the fence about the Sweet Valley Twins.
