Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Smart

I couldn't name this post Dweedle-Dee and Dweedle-Dum because it sounds like one of this pair in question is "dumb"...and they're both freakishly smart (ok, one of them is above average, the other is FREAKISHLY intelligent..."A", you know what I'm sayin').

Yesterday, two EFA employees (I'll call them "A" and C to keep them anonymous) had an appointment to meet at a doctor's office to work out some details before starting a new program there. "A" looked around her cube wall to confirm what time C wanted to leave...and she gasped.

"No, please, you didn't!"

C stood slowly, revealing the awful truth. They were wearing EXACTLY the same outfit. Black socks, black loafers, black pants, silver chains, olive green collared and button-down shirts (same color...SAME color). Some further probing revealed they were also wearing the same colored underwear.

They established a little skit of sorts. "A" described the above scenario, then C would stroll in casually. They became a bit of a circus side show. What made it funnier is that they have similar builds...if C's hair were a little shorter they could have been twins for sure.

And so, they did the only thing a couple fashion-conscience gals could do...they left early to stop by Target so C could get a new shirt.

"above average" sounds so not smart compared to "freakishly intelligent" I think we took an IQ test together before and had very close scores, so I beg the difference...and C said you spelled awful incorrectly...even I knew that.

If I am to continue writing in a creative way, I must be allowed to draw pictures of situations and events with slightly exaggerated comparisons. I apologize for this obvious (to you) slight in brain power. I agree that you could be described as "freakish" in some ways...but let's be honest, C is the super spelling machine.
