Hello again … and again…

Twice upon a time, a set of twins opened their eyes. Blinked. Opened their eyes again. Blinked. A test run for the next 500,000,000 times each would repeat the process for the next 80 years. Returning again and again to recharge and renew their precious and intricately wonderful windows to the world.

So alike were they, their parents gave each the same name: “Bob.” Spelled with the same letters, but capitalized differently – as a nod to the inescapable fact that they were, regardless of their similarities, separate and distinct creations.

So in sync, so attuned to each others everything, “Bob” and “bOb” even blinked in unison. Yet, neither every knew. How could they? One never saw the other blink. For a tiny portion of each day, each never saw each other at all.

“Brother ?!”

“Whew. There you are !”

“Brother ?!”

“Whew. There you are !”

And on and on they shared the same dialog. Experiencing the same fluctuating flood of emotions over and over each time they saw each other anew: sad / distraught / lost / abandoned / happy / relieved / found / rescued.

Years later, on a camping trip, the brothers met their future wives. Twin sisters. Sue and sUe. Each was prettier than the other, depending on who was doing the looking. For brother Bob, it was always Sue. For bOb, it was always sUe.

Throughout the years, their relationships remained as fresh and exciting as on this day they first met. For it was the same with Bob & Sue & bOb & sUe as it had always been with Bob & bOb.

All eight eyes. All blinking in unison. Every 5 seconds experiencing that same discomforting / comforting fluctuating flood of emotions over and over each time they saw each other anew: sad / distraught / lost / abandoned / happy / relieved / found / rescued.

Recharged.

NOTE: In response to the prompt-word-of-the-day: ‘recharge.’
