Kaylie & Kellie

 

This song is my own "Linus and Lucy."  I went to elementary school with twin sisters Kaylie and Kellie. I had a crush on them in the 5th or 6th grade.  After finishing my paper route, I would ride my rust-colored Schwinn Continental by their house. I had a mop of curls and was very shy. One day, when I rode my bike by their house, they were both waving to me through the window and my heart leapt out of my chest! I thought they were the most beautiful girls I had ever seen.  They waved me inside to meet and introduce me to their parents. I continued to ride my bike to their house and we spent afternoons at a nearby playground. Kaylie and Kellie decided to line up several picnic tables and we leapt from one to the next. The twins giggled and their long hair danced behind them, until we collapsed from exhaustion.
