I was looking tonight for a recent picture of Maya and Kurtis together to give the story I'm about to tell you a bit more credence but couldn't locate one that was really recent. I did however find this one -taken a little over a month ago of the two kids.
I think you can see a lot of the ways the kids look alike on this -although not as much as I'd like to be able to show of the two of them together and how much alike they do look at sometimes.
But, since I do like this shot of them together -I decided what the heck. I'll go with it anyway.
Today though, my best friend from my working days at the NRA -way, way back ya know -happened to phone me and we were having one of our normal really lengthy phone conversations. For the most part of our talk, the kids were playing -fairly quietly -upstairs in their room, with an occasional jaunt past me in the living room. Just so I would remember they were still present and accounted for I suppose.
However, at one point, they appeared in front of me and they looked a tad differently than they had on their previous visit. Hmmm. I could have sworn Kurt had shorts on earlier and Maya too plus, I know she'd apparently changed tee shirts too.
So I asked Kurt where his shorts were and why was he running around with only his underwear and a tee shirt on. Maya, meanwhile, is standing there just giggling at me and that's when I realized she had shed her shorts too and was only wearing a tee shirt and underpants as well. On a closer glance I also then realized she didn't even have her own underwear on but rather was wearing a pair of Kurt's underwear -training pants with little pictures all over 'em of Spongebob Bob -or whatever that yellow square cartoon character is called.
So I asked her why they were both dressed like this.
You ready for her answer now?
"Because we are pretending to be twin brothers!"
Gotta love it that she has an answer for darned near everything, huh?
