If you put my sister and I together, it is often a deadly combination. Not deadly for us, but deadly for everyone else who comes in our path.
Over the holidays, we often play charades with our best family friends, the Possees. When Abby and I are on the same team, no one else really stands a chance. All Abby or I need to do it is look at each other and we instantly know what the other is thinking. In a blink of the eye, we are yelling out the right answer.
For one year in high school , we had the opportunity to swim together representing our school. At the state meet we won both relays and we came in first and second in the 100 yard backstroke. Talk about family domination (no, it isn’t worth mentioning that NH state swimming really isn’t that competitive – I want to seem impressive).
Whenever Abby and I are both home at the same time, within 5 minutes my mom can be heard saying, “I hate when you are both here. I just don’t even stand a chance.” Sorry Mom, but you are the one who created this.
So when Abby and I talk about going into business together, I know that we would be an unstoppable duo. Forget “D.C. Cupcakes,” The Kardashians, or Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen – we would create an empire than no other sisters could match. All that’s left is to come up with a business plan, raise some capital and launch our business. That shouldnt’ be too hard…
Anyone have any suggestions for a business idea? And no, starting a swim lesson empire is not an option.
