A Lifetime of Sartorial Unity

In a surprising twist this year, the octogenarian duo decided to embrace a spooky homage, dressing up like the twins from Stanley Kubrick’s horror classic, The Shining.

During an interview with The Washington Post, Anne and Susan traced the origins of their fashion synchronicity back to their mother, who started dressing them alike as infants. Over the years, this preference for matching outfits extended to their shopping habits, where they would routinely buy duplicates of everything. The twins revealed that this consistency provided not only a charming connection but also a practical advantage during April Fools’ Day pranks on their students.

Pranks and Commonalities

As retired health and physical education teachers, the twins shared a mischievous side, utilizing their identical appearances to play tricks on unsuspecting students. Anne reminisced about Susan entering her class during April Fools’ Day, causing students to erupt in disbelief.

Beyond their penchant for pranks, the twins discovered a multitude of shared interests, from being cat lovers to avid hikers. Their joint enthusiasm extends to TV shows, with Survivor and The Voice topping their watchlist. While their shared DNA is evident, Anne and Susan’s connection goes beyond appearances. In addition to speaking five times a day and catching up weekly, the twins exhibit a remarkable harmony in their preferences and habits.
