What comes to your mind when you hear the wordtwins”? Born on the same day? Looking almost the same? Or having the same hobbies? Well, I have a twin brother who was born on a different day from me. We do not look very much alike and we are always interested in different things.

Twelve years ago, my brother, Wayne, was born at eleven fifty-eight on the night of May 28. Five minutes later, I was bornon May 29. Since the time we were born, I have always been heavier and stronger than Wayne, so people usually think I am the older brother.

But Wayne is always smarter than I. He loves reading and learns many things quickly. He knows a lot about animals, although he does not spend much time with our dogs and birds. He knows a lot about bicycles, but never likes to ride bikes as much as I do.

Though we are very different, I love my brother very much. I hope both of us can have a happy life in the future.

Dear Grandpa:

I'm so glad that you're finally comingin three days! It was Christmas yesterday. We put up a beautiful Christmas tree in the living room. I'm sure you'll like it when you see it.

Lily and I drove two hours to Chinatown in New York City yesterday. We bought a lot of Chinese food there. Mom said you would bring us more snacks from Taiwan. I just can't wait!

All of us will go and pick you up at the airport except Dad. He has to see one of his teachers from high school that day, but he will come back and take us to a big dinner in the evening.

During your two-week stay, we are going to take you to England for one week. I've never been there, either. But I'm sure we're going to have fun in this trip.
