My identical twin Lucy has always been the luckiest daughter of a bitch. She went to Harvard, I dropped out of high school. She got engaged five times, I got pregnant by my pimpled BF who married me out of pity. And to make things worse, Lucy was about to fly to Mars, apparently to settle a human colony in a group of carefully selected purebred studs. When I saw their pictures online, I cried venom. But then I composed myself and invited Lucy for a farewell drink.

When Lucy finally woke up, I was already far away from Earth.

    So much is possible when you have an identical twin! Recently watched an interesting documentary on identical twins, and the myths surrounding them.
    One set worked for Cirque du Soleil. One brother was heterosexual and the other was homosexual. With another set, one was atheist and the other brother was Jewish, and a firm believer. Another set featured two elderly sisters, one infirm and the other extremely active and youthful. How far does "identical"
    really go... Your drabble is a great example!

    I once dated a girl who claimed to have an identical twin. Never met her though … Or did I?
    Great drabble!

    Who knows how are things on the planet of Mars. May be Lucy IS lucky after all...
